John Lennon segments from WBCN Boston
LInked below are two audio segments I taped (yes, cassette tapes!) off the radio on December 9, 1980. Both were produced and broadcast on WBCN, a radio station in Boston, FM frequency 104.1.
The first has about 5 minutes of a news report about the shooting and death of John Lennon. This is followed by some of Lennon’s music.
The second is a longer segment (25 minutes) of a produced tribute that includes audio from news reports, iconic quotes, sound clips from and about John Lennon, and reflections on his legacy.
I listen to these these every year on December 8th. And like other media I’ve “captured” over the years, I’m so glad had a blank cassette tape at the ready on that fateful day!
