Virtually everyone in the world who has listened to music has heard The Beatles, and most are fans. The 1960s youngsters from Liverpool formed one of the most influential bands of all time. They have been extensively written about, but the interest in their music, lives, influences is un-ending. Popular writer and memoirist Craig Brown, author of the universally enjoyed recent book “1234: The Beatles In Time” , in conversation with Hrishi K, one of India’s leading radio presenters, sheds new light on the incredible band to whom the world still says Yes! almost 60 years after they first sang: “Love Me Do!”
