Welcome to Beatles City, the podcast that brings you the story of the band that shook the world from the place where it all began.


Join us on a journey along the sandstone-lined streets of John Lennon’s childhood Woolton, into the Kensington living room-turned-recording studio where the Quarrymen cut their first record and down the steep steps into the Cavern’s cellar nightclub.


Listen to memories of The Beatles’ early days told in the voices of the people who were there, from members of the Quarrymen to the band’s school friends, and hear from guests with a unique insight into the band.

    Pete Price

    Liverpool radio presenter and comedian Pete Price can fondly remember the rise of The Beatles in the city and was even responsible for a protest outside the Cavern when Pete Best was sacked from the band.


    He also remembers the anger felt by music fans in the Cavern when The Beatles became international stars. Fans wanted to keep them the Cavern’s little secret.

    Helen Anderson

    Helen Anderson studied at Liverpool College of Art at the same time as John Lennon and his future wife Cynthia Powell - and counted them both as friends for the rest of their lives.


    She was lucky enough to watch John, Paul and George rehearse in a room at the art school.


    And when Lennon wanted some new clothes, he would often sketch them for her and ask her to make them.

    St Peter's Church Fete

    St Peter's Church Fete

    July 6, 1967 is etched in musical history as the day John Lennon was introduced to Paul McCartney by their mutual friend Ivan Vaughan.
    The moment of their meeting would have gone unremembered had it not been the beginning of one of the world’s greatest musical partnerships.


    This week we go to St Peter’s Church Hall to meet two women who were both there that day - Pam Cottrell and Jennie Lovegrove.

    Anton Mullan

    Anton Mullan

    Our guest this week has forgotten more encounters with fame than most people have ever had.
    Anton Mullan was a rising star of Liverpool’s music scene in the 1960s with his band The Trilogy - and even signed a contract with EMI - but his heavy drinking got in the way of his success.
    Now recovered, he has had a fascinating career in television and the music industry - all helped along by a wise piece of advice given to him by John Lennon.

    Giles Martin at Abbey Road

    Giles Martin at Abbey Road

    We’re journeying out of Liverpool for this week’s episode - to Abbey Road Studios - to speak to the son of legendary Beatles producer George Martin.


    As well as being a hugely successful music producer in his own right, Giles Martin worked with his dad on the Love album for the Cirque du Soleil show of the same name and has since remastered a number of Beatles albums, including the pioneering 1967 record Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.


    A new Dolby Atmos version of the music is being launched here in Liverpool later this week - giving fans an immersive experience that aims to sound as though the band is playing live in the space.
