Krantz Media Group to Release 'John Lennon: The Final Interview' Radio Special Exclusively on Apple iTunes
Critically acclaimed radio special to be released exclusively to consumers on iTunes on Tuesday, February 8th, for $3.99
NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2011 -- With approval from Yoko Ono, Krantz Media Group will release, "John Lennon: The Final Interview" Radio Special, as an exclusive download, on Apple iTunes available Tuesday, February 8th, 2011. The special centers on John Lennon's last radio interview, along with Yoko, recorded at The Dakota in New York City, only hours before Lennon's tragic death on December 8th, 1980. The special aired on over 150 radio stations worldwide this past December, commemorating the 30th anniversary of Lennon's death.
The original team that conducted the interview (Dave Sholin, Laurie Kaye, Ron Hummel and Bert Keane) has come together 30 years later to re-create this historic event. Along with highlights from the interview, they relay their own unique memories of that day, including events leading up to the interview, meeting John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and a curb-side encounter with Mark David Chapman, the deranged killer who gunned down Lennon later that night.
"This historic radio event celebrates the life and music of John Lennon, focusing on a truly joyous interview that was conducted as he was beginning a brand-new phase of his career," said Gary Krantz, President/CEO of Krantz Media Group. "KMG is extremely excited to bring this rare and historic interview to consumers worldwide through an exclusive arrangement with iTunes."
