Jude Southerland Kessler of The John Lennon Series and Lanea Stagg of The Recipe Records Series sit down with Director of Cavern Tours, Liverpool, and John Lennon’s sister, Julia Baird for a lively and revealing chat. Julia discusses her Strawberry Fields Project which reaches out to children with special needs and has had a transformative affect on her hometown of Liverpool. She briefly discusses Paul McCartney and George Harrison. And then, she talks at length about her childhood and teen years with her famous brother, John Lennon, and her beloved mother, Julia Stanley Lennon. Julia, who inspired John to become a musician and form a band, was a talented musician and a woman “ahead of her time,” in her daughter’s words, and you will discover what she means in this heart-felt, sincere, and emotional conversation. Julia Baird is an incredible lady - a teacher, the author of two books (including her latest, Imagine This), a business director, and now…a city-transformer who will speak to your heart. Julia knows John Lennon as no other, and here, she shares her life story with you.
