Overview

Ever thought anything good would come from a small town in England called Liverpool? Or rise from introductions at a church social function in that very town? Well, believe it or not, from this bay city off the River Mersey sprang the most remarkable band the world has ever known: The Beatles. This is the story of the earlier years of Rock 'n Roll, how Johnny and the Moondogs got a new name, the thunderstorms of Beatlemania, the men who made this group the worldwide phenomenon they became, and then the lingering melodies of their songs long after their breakup. Listen to interviews with John Lennon's first band (The Quarry Men), to John Lennon's sister Julia Baird as she breaks her long silence, the Beatles' first manager Beryl Adams, their chauffeur Alf Bicknell, the Beatles themselves, and many others. Music fans of all kinds won't want to miss out on this detailed expose of The Liverpool Street Kids.
