BBC Radio 2 to Feature Cultural Icons this Autumn

The Beatley part of the article.

A programme that explores a truly poignant time in history with another great icon this autumn is John Lennon ’s Last Day (Thursday 8 October, 10-11pm), performed by Ian Hart…

I only remembered this today, obviously too late. Was it any good?

 

It’s available to listen to here. I’m going whacking on the headphones and listening to it now because I’ve procrastinated and not done out notes for some people and I need to get them started tonight and the radio is fun to listen to.

 

Just finished it and I’m all teary-eyed. I thought it was done really well Ian Hart speaks of John as in the 3rd person so he says “John Lennon got up at….Then John Lennon …” it sounds jarring but it completely fits the piece. The tears began to fall at the end when Hart was talking about if John hadn’t gone back to say goodnight to Sean would he be alive today and then they played little Sean singing With A Little Help From My Friends , and you’re just forced to think about what a merciless bastard Chapman was, gunning down a man who was going in to see his five year old son. 

All-in-all it was a good show, I enjoyed the end-bit (I’m paraphrasing):

“Enough about Chapman, he didn’t really kill John Lennon that day. John’s music and The Beatles’ will be played for generations and generations to come, long after we’re all gone”

Truer words were never spoken.

Also just finished listening, @AppleScruffJunior (and recording it).

Agree that it was very well done. Good idea to have Hart as the narrator. It was interesting how personal he sounded whenever he had to mention that man, his contempt was dripping bile every time the script demanded a mention of him.

I was rather teary-eyed by the end.

Thanks for the link, ASJr. For those who would like to hear it, the player notes that you only have 24 days in which to do so. I imagine it will be taken down thereafter.

Thanks to both you and Ron for the reviews. I will be sure to listen to it this weekend…tissues at the ready.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

BBC 4 are broadcasting the 2012 documentay ‘Arena: The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour ‘ on Saturday 24th October at midnight (thats just after Friday officially ends not just after Saturday ends – clear?) and again on Sunday 25th October at 1am.

It will then be available on the BBC iPlayer shortly afterwards.

For anyone in the UK the BBC radio app has a handful of Beatles related programs to download. The search engine doesn’t bring them all up and some expire over the next few days but there are documentaries on the rooftop concert, John’s “Bigger than Jesus” controversy, the 40th anniversary of the White Album and John’s New York years (all of which can be found in the first few days of Radio 6’s October schedule). Also available is a debate just after John’s murder in 1980 to amend the gun control laws in America.

Something is wrong in the details as the time of the show is 8pm – 9pm but it runs for 120 minutes.

That’s where they had to cut Free As A Bird and Real Love for not being canon.

Even if they were canon they wouldn’t have made the cut, as neither reached Number One in the UK or the US. They’ve just fecked up the timing, running on a weekday night, it will be broadcast between 8-10pm.

Can’t wait to see. Here’s hoping for lots of pithy comments and forever going in circles around the same damn points. 

Fingers crossed we get an extended cut where they discuss the ‘A Day In The Life ‘ ahh’s.

The various ITV channels are running promos for ‘The Nations Favourite Beatles Number One’ (i thought it was called ‘The Nations Favourite Beatles Song’ but number one covers it as they are promoting ‘1’). 

In case folk forgot (i did until I saw the promo – i’m watching the snooker) it’s on tomorrow (Wednesday 11th November) at 8pm for those in the UK or who can someone access that channel thru other means.

 

Also a reminder that episodes one and two of ‘The Beatles at the BBC with Bill Kenwright’ are now available to download on the BBC Radio app (country restrictions apply.

AMC will show a John Lennon tribute concert on December 19th at 9pm ET/PT.
http://www.amc.com/talk/2015/1…..ised-event

I wish one of us could be at the concert itself.

In honor of what would have been John Lennon ’s 75th birthday, Blackbird Presents, in partnership with AMC, today announced Imagine : John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert, an all-star concert event celebrating the music and message of the legendary music icon. The one-night-only concert event taping will be held at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, December 5th at 7:30pm ET, and air exclusively on AMC on Saturday, December 19th at 9:00pm ET/PT.

This once-in-a-lifetime concert, produced by Blackbird Presents, will bring together fans, friends and music royalty to honor Lennon’s legacy. The event will feature performances by: Aloe Blacc, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Peter Frampton, JUANES, Kris Kristofferson, Pat Monahan (Train), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Willie Nelson, The Roots, Chris Stapleton, and Steven Tyler. Additional performers will be announced at a later date.

“It’s beautiful to see so many wonderful and talented musicians come together for this special show to celebrate John’s birthday,” said Yoko Ono. “John’s art continues to give hope, light and happiness to generations of people everywhere. His belief that each of us can change the world continues to inspire the human race to believe in themselves, and his influence is everlasting in everyone’s hearts as we all share in the possibilities and power of music.”

“We are proud to be associated with this special event, and to bring Imagine : John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert to AMC viewers,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development, AMC and SundanceTV. “We are continuing to explore unique opportunities in non-fiction programming and special events that can live alongside our original productions and movies, and we know this remarkable event will do just that and attract Lennon fans and music lovers of all ages.”

Tickets are available to the general public on Tuesday, November 17th at 9:00am ET through Ticketmaster Charge By Phone (1-866-858-0008), the Ticketmaster website and all Ticketmaster Outlets. Tickets are available in person beginning Wednesday, November 18th at the Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall and The Beacon Theatre box offices. A portion of proceeds from the concert will be donated to Robin Hood. Robin Hood, New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization, creates and funds over 200 of the most effective programs, to help 1.8 million New Yorkers learn and earn their way out of poverty.

Good news young forumpudlians, RTÉ1 (an Irish channel) is going showing a new Beatles documentary:

 

Fab! The Night the Beatles Came To Dublin (27 December at 8pm) The Beatles came to Dublin for 2 concerts on Nov 7th 1963 and the teenagers of the country went crazy. Using extensive archive and news reports of that time, these diehard fans share their stories from that glorious moment of madness in this heart warming documentary.

 

I’ll make sure to post a link to it so ye can all watch it if ye want. It should be good 🙂

@AppleScruffJunior 

 I’d love to see that documentary. Those concerts took place the day after I was born. Looking forward to the link.

Speaking of links, here is one to Joe’s article on those shows.
