In Episode 335 of Things We Said Today, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren DeVivo speak with David Bedford, the author of several books on the Beatles, about his latest, “The Country of Liverpool.” A study of the popularity of country music in England, and particularly Liverpool (“Nashville of the North,” as it was known among British country fans), the book looks at the style’s appeal to British listeners, and its influence on the Beatles and their music. (A technical note: there is some unavoidable internet noise in the first several minutes of the show, but it eventually vanishes.)
