A Day to Celebrate Lennon: His Best Works, and Thoughts from Yoko

Sunday, December 08, 2013

John Lennon wrote songs that reflected, inspired, and shaped our lives. With The Beatles, and during his solo career, Lennon questioned and challenged what a song could be, and gave us new possibilities. He was murdered in New York City on December 8, 1980, and on this anniversary, we honor his life and legacy. David Garland presents a range of Lennon's famous and less-well-known songs, and speaks with Lennon's widow Yoko Ono about what the songs mean to her and the world.

Yoko Ono, Arctic, Hamlisch

Friday, October 02, 2009

Her musical polar opposite is Marvin Hamlisch the composer of "A Chorus Line" and "The Sting." He recalls creating some of Broadway's and Hollywood's best known scores. And then it's off to the North Pole. Really. Hear how artists prepare for a journey to the Arctic Circle where frostbite is the greatest barrier to creativity.
