Dr Mike Jones is a lecturer at the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Popular Music. As part of a report he has written for the city of Liverpool, he’s been examining the intense and occasionally strained relationship between the city and its most successful global export – The Beatles.
He has traced a fascinating story shaped by the social, political and economic changes Liverpool has faced in the last 100 years, and brought to life a new way of looking at the city’s approach to the band. Here are five things we learned about Liverpool’s recognition of The Beatles from Mike’s appearance on the University of Liverpool Podcast.
