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 6: It’s real, yes it’s real love
In this final episode, James and Ray look what happens after the White Album. End of the struggle. ‘Let It Be’ was the final word. Paul’s mum talks to him in a dream. The whole is bigger than the sum of the parts. Paul says ‘the thing is, we are all really the same person. Just four parts of one.’ What happens to the four parts? What happens to John and Yoko? What happens to real love?
So listen up, and listen in, to … John & Yoko … a love story …
