WELCOME TO SPENCER LEIGH’S ‘ON THE BEAT’

Welcome to my website and if you have been buying any of my books, thank you. I’m happy to send out signed copies if you wish.

I know from meeting people at Beatle Conventions in Liverpool that a lot of you like having books signed, so please get in touch if you want me to do that.  Someone gave Paul McCartney a copy of my old book, Let’s Go Down The Cavern to sign and he said, “Oh, Spencer’s book!”, which made my day as he had recognised the cover.

Following Coronavirus, the BBC local radio stations have had a restructuring and there are very few specialist programmes around.  I will still be doing things at Bank Holidays and the like for BBC Radio Merseyside but the days of the weekly On The Beat have gone.   Not to worry, I’m now involved in classifying them all for the archive at Liverpool Central Library.
