Listen: Beatles author Hunter Davies interviewed by Spencer Leigh on BBC Radio Merseyside

Beatles fans should check out Spencer Leigh's "On the Beat" program weekly, as it generally has Beatles and Beatles-related content. Leigh, himself, has authored several important books about the group.

This week's episode is especially notable, as it includes Leigh speaking with Hunter Davies, who penned the only authorized biography of the Fabs way back in 1968, talking about his two most-recent books: "The John Lennon Letters" and "The Beatles Lyrics."

Both books feature original manuscripts from John, Paul and George and include Davies' first-hand insights on the group, which he got to know well in the late 1960s.

It's great fun to hear these two Beatles experts chat. Also on the show is a musical performance by Ronan McManus, half-brother of Declan (a.k.a. Elvis Costello), who sounds great.
