25 Years Without Lennon

By liz

BBC 6 Radio and BBC 2 are honoring the memory of John Lennon all day. On this 25th anniversary of this death the collected stations have compiled a spectacular tribune to the musical legend:

  • Working Class Hero featured as the Record of the Day - 6 Radio
  • Exclusive interview with John Peel interviewing John and Yoko in 1968.
  • Throughout the day the station will be playing music that inspired John (ie. Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, etc).
  • Several guest artists have gone into Abbey Road to record cover tracks specifically for the ocassion. Guests include: Paul Weller, Trashcan Sinatras, Lulu, Gomez, Badly Drawn Boy and more (even... the Sugababes with a cover of 'Come Together').

You can listen live to both stations today or the material will remain up on the web for at least a week.
