Esteemed Beatles historian, Lennon genealogist, and author, Philip Kirkland, stops by to talk with Lanea Stagg of The Recipe Records Series and Jude Southerland Kessler of The John Lennon Series about the interesting and colorful history of one of John Lennon's most colorful ancestors who served as a priest in the Liverpool diocese. This is not only a glimpse into John's heritage but also a look at life in Liverpool as the Protestant and Catholic churches and cultures worked to "come together" and to resolve their differences. Philip has many interesting stories to tell, and he makes John's great-uncle come to life in this 50-minute chat. Philip's book, The Rise and Fall of Father Lennon, is sold in all major online stores. Enjoy!
