Music Weekly: John Lennon remembered

This week, 30 years ago, John Lennon was shot dead in New York. How would he have felt about the candlelit vigils in his honour? Would he have wanted to be canonised and worshipped by so many? Of course, no one can truly know.

But this week’s podcast looks at the lesser-known aspects of Lennon’s life. First up, we hear from director Tony Palmer, who explains how a chance meeting with Lennon many years ago spurred him to make the documentary series, All You Need Is Love.

In Singles Club, Alexis and Rosie are joined by John Harris to cast their ears over some of Lennon’s music; Nobody Told Me from John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Milk and Honey, God from John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and I’m a Loser from Beatles for Sale.

Finally, in Feature With No Name, the panel discuss Yoko Ono’s music from screaming prog-rock to krautrock, and Alexis re-examines our ideas about her.

And that’s your lot. Enjoy this week’s show, as always come and say hello on Facebook or Twitter if you so wish.
