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. This podcast is brought to you by the Liverpool Echo. Hosts Ellen Kirwin and Laura Davis.
