My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

May 19, 2022

As day turns to night and the sun rises and sets, we return to talking about the Beatles. Surprisingly there is something new to say on this subject, as proven by today’s guest, Dr. Christine Feldman-Barrett. She joins me to delve into her brilliant book ‘A Women’s History of the Beatles’, why it was important to write, compensating for male narratives and perspectives on the Fab Four, the all female rock band from Liverpool the Beatles inspired, how the band went from feminine to masculine coded, how the aspirational nature of the band spoke to women breaking out of traditional gender roles in society, the importance of Astrid Kirchherr, and the Beatles influence of female musicians in the decades since.
