John & Yoko ... a love story
Produced by Blue Trumpet for Eastside Radio 89.7 FM, ‘John & Yoko … a love story’ follows the ruminations of two self-described ‘Beatles tragics’, Ray Rose and James Benn, as they discuss the musical evolution of John Lennon and Paul McCartney during their brief career with the Beatles, with frequent reference to the music and revealing quotes from John and Paul. Throughout, Ray and James ponder the implications of Yoko’s appearance on the 60s’ pop scene and whether it was really she who broke up the Beatles.
Episode 5: Everybody got something to hide ‘cept me and my monkey
In this episode James and Ray look at how the Beatles made the White Album. Paul was turning into a bossy git. Martin took an unscheduled holiday. Ringo too. Leaving John and Paul to fight it out. They weren’t working together now. Paul was playing everything on his own tracks. Writing all styles of pop music. John was still writing good songs. But John was in love with Yoko. Who wins the battle?
So listen up, and listen in, to … John & Yoko … a love story …
