    Encore: The Cleave Series: How Did John Lennon Live in 1966? Part 1

    In this episode, host Diana Erickson and regular guest Dr. Duncan Driver dive into the first part of Maureen Cleave's 1966 profile of John Lennon, originally published in The Evening Standard under the title "How A Beatle Lives." These extraordinary interviews offer unique insight into the Beatles' world and lives at this time. John Lennon captivates with his swagger and charm.

    These contemporaneous portraits hold significant value because they challenge some of the dominant stories about the Beatles at this time. So much of our understanding of the Beatles has been informed by what the Beatles said after the breakup, and this close reading allows us to consider what they actually said at that time.

This podcast is such a treat!

Diana is an engaging and entertaining host who wears her enormous knowledge lightly. The guests are always insightful and well-chosen. I was a “casual” fan but not anymore! One Sweet Dream rekindled my interest in all things Beatles and I can’t wait for the next episode :)
