- Author BiographyAfter three decades of playing and listening to popular music, Michael Brocken was amongst the first few Doctorates to emerge from the Institute of Popular Music at the University of Liverpool in the mid-late 1990s. A Liverpudlian by birth, he is currently Senior Lecturer in Popular Music Studies at Liverpool Hope University, UK where he inaugurated what is still the world's only Master's degree in Beatles-related studies. He has written and broadcast on a wide variety of topics including the Beatles and Merseybeat, Green Day, Burt Bacharach, British folk music and industry, and even rugby league football. He hosted his own music show 'Brocken Roll' for several years and following a seven-year gap has recently (2014) returned to radio broadcasting by hosting, twice each month, Britain's longest running specialist music radio programme: BBC Radio Merseyside's Folk Scene.
