There are a number of celebrations marked for radio, around the world -- something that would undoubtedly have pleased Lennon, considering he had his first taste of rock 'n' roll thanks to an illegal radio station near Liverpool.
In England, BBC Radio 4 is scheduled to broadcast an interview with Lennon recorded by Rolling Stone Editor Jann Wenner shortly after The Beatles split. Canada will have a John Lennon Radio Series hosted by Graham Nash, featuring interviews with Lennon's first wife Cynthia, the original Beatles drummer Pete Best, Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney and others close to Lennon.
This series will also air in the US, Mexico, Australia and half a dozen other countries around the world.
