Broadcaster and self-confessed Beatles Superfan, Geoff Lloyd is to host a new weekly show on national digital station, Union JACK Radio where he looks into The Beatles’ music, history and continued cultural relevance.
Beatlejuice is a two-hour, 12 part weekly show launching at 10am on Sunday 7 March on the station.
Lloyd also hosts the only UK-produced show for the official Beatles/Apple Corps channel in the US and has won acclaim for his numerous interviews with Sir Paul McCartney. His new show will include live recordings, insider interviews and spotlights on those who influenced The Fab Four.
Born in Manchester and raised in Macclesfield, Geoff Lloyd is an acclaimed radio presenter, TV host, podcast host and writer, best known for his talk radio and music shows. Speaking about the new show, Geoff says: “After a rotten year for everyone, I jumped at the chance to fill the airwaves with music that’s brought so much joy to the world for over half a century. The Beatles are the UK’s greatest contribution to modern culture – where better to celebrate them than Union JACK radio?”
The show comes at a time when there has been much conversation about The Beatles, with Peter Jackson’s Beatles’ documentary ‘The Beatles: Get Back’ set to be a major 2021 release, and Beatles’ Manager Brian Epstein the focus of Grammy-Award-Winning Director Jonas Akerland’s film ‘Midas Man’, also scheduled for 2021. Paul McCartney also ended 2020 with his first number one album in over three decades, fifty years after The Beatles’ split.
Beatlejuice can be heard across the JACK network, including on national digital radio stations Union JACK Rock and Union JACK Dance, and on Oxfordshires’s JACKfm and JACK3 from Sunday 7 March at 10am.
