Before They Were Beatles - Episode 01: Strawberry Fields - Introduction

Before They Were Beatles
Episode 01: Strawberry Fields - Introduction


Listen here: BTWB - Episode 01: Strawberry Fields - Introduction

In Liverpool , England, October 1956. Schoolboy John Lennon and his best friend, Peter Shotton, decide to start a skiffle group as “a bit of a lark.” Four years later John, now accompanied by Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe, and Pete Best, left Liverpool to start a series of near-legendary gigs in Hamburg, Germany. His group now performing under their newly acquired name – THE BEATLES.

This is the story of those four years. The story of how one of the thousands of amateur schoolboy skiffle bands evolved into the beginnings of the greatest band in popular history. It’s a story of hope, creativity, and exploring musical boundaries. It’s also a story of tragedy, coincidence and at times just sheer luck.

It is a story of beginnings, the story of John, Paul, George, and Ringo - Before They Were Beatles.

The first introductory episode covers host Alan J. Porter's personal connections with Strawberry Fields and how the genesis of his original Before They Were Beatles book.

The music heard in this episode includes:
  • The Quarrymen - In Spite of All The Danger
  • John Lennon - Strawberry Fields Forever (acoustic)
  • Various voices - Imagine (John Lennon)
  • Lonnie Donegan - Rock Island Line
