As time goes by, John Lennon’s legacy seems to grow larger; not only do fans continue to rediscover his incredible music, both with the Beatles and solo, but we continue to admire his social activism, his drawings, and even his humor – John Lennon is still a part of our everyday lives. On the thirtieth anniversary of his untimely death, Icon Fetch will pay tribute to the man who touched so many people. We’ll hear stories from a wide array of artists, including Delbert McClinton, who taught Lennon how to play the harmonica, May Pang, who was Lennon’s girlfriend during his so-called “Lost Weekend,” and Wally Bryson of the Raspberries, who met Lennon while his band was recording an album in 1974. We’ll also talk with musicians Tommy James, Gary Wright, Shelby Lynne, Peter Case, Richard Barone, David Lanz, Marshall Crenshaw and Dwight Twilley on how their lives were affected by John’s music. In addition, several authors who’ve recently written books on the singer will share their thoughts, including Ken Sharp, who wrote “Starting Over – The Making of Double Fantasy;” Keith Elliot Greenberg, who penned “December 8, 1980 – The Day John Lennon Died;” and Robert Rodriguez, author of “Fab Four FAQ 2.0” and the recently published, "The Beatles: Fifty Fabulous Years." The special two-hour live broadcast will also feature some of Lennon’s music and give listeners a chance to phone in and share their own thoughts and memories
