Alice In Wonderland And The Beatles Podcast

alice in wonderland podcast


Why is Lewis Carroll pictured on the cover of one of the most groundbreaking rock and roll albums of all time? Join your host Heather as she explores the influence Alice In Wonderland and Lewis Carroll had on the Beatles! John Lennon in particular was a lifelong fan of the Alice books, and directly called out Through the Looking- Glass in more than one song. Who was the walrus, goo goo g’joob? In Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, who exactly should we picture in a boat on a river? Learn the answers to these burning questions, then hear some great music and a plethora of quotes to support the Alice/Beatles connection. We’ll also prepare you for the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with a refresher course on how the cover art came to be. Lastly, we’ll whet your appetite for Part 2 of Alice In Wonderland And The Beatles, when we’ll investigate the effect Lewis Carroll and his creations had on Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. Please note, we will not talk about The Eggman. Don’t you worry who The Eggman is, it’s not important!
