Music journalist and author Laura Barton joins Jack & Robin to discuss growing up in the Beatles heartland of North West England. In a very sprawling chat, we cover everything from the intensity of being a music fan 17, the joy of sad songs, the ever-changing relationship with Beatles albums, and her experiences interviewing some musical heroes including Yoko Ono and Van Morrison.

There is also chat about Laura's former fat cat, Paul McCartney, and why The Beatles never got rubbish.
