Jude Southerland Kessler and Lanea Stagg interview Helen Anderson about her life and her memories of The Beatles, John Lennon and Cynthia Lennon

Interview with Helen Anderson about John Lennon

For the inside story on John Lennon and loads of memories from fashion designer Helen Anderson - Lennon's friend and of course the designer of his famous leather cap - listen to this great interview with Jude Southerland Kessler.


Back in the 1990s, the prolific author and broadcaster and Beatles expert Jude Southerland Kessler interviewed me at home for The John Lennon Series, the definitive biography in several volumes. Since then, she's launched a hugely successful podcast with Lanea Stagg (of The Recipe Records), called "She Said She Said". We reunited remotely for another lovely chat.
I share loads of memories that are broadcast for the first time and talk about all sorts, from the early Beatles to George Formby, Rory Storm and Alma Cogan, as well as John and Cyn's great love story.
Jude and Lanea were excited to see that I had re-released my John Lennon Leather cap and created some original T-shirt designs: please visit  my online shop to check them out.
First broadcast in June 2021.
