John Lennon Special Today, and the end of the current Beatle Beat Series

Sadly, Bob Kanish is unavailable to descend with us to the depths today, so I hope you will join me for a special to celebrate the 75th anniversary of John Lennon's birth. It's three hours of Beatles and John Lennon music, and you're welcome to have a say in what is played. If you have any special memories associated with John or the Beatles, do feel free to share them. You can drop me an email or send me a tweet.
The show is on at 9 PM Eastern.
John Lennon famously said "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". And sadly, due to life getting in the way, I've had to make a decision to end the current series of Beatle Beat. I feel that a good Beatles show has to do more than just churn out Beatles music. As John also famously said, you've got all the records if you want to reminisce. So in Beatle Beat, I've been presenting news, in-depth notes about the Beatles history, and rare audio. That takes a long time to research and then record, and due to work commitments, I don't feel able to devote the time to the show at present to do it justice.
I certainly hope to put occasional specials together, and really appreciate all the emails and supportive messages I've received during this series of Beatle Beat. The John Lennon montage, which took a long time to select and put together, seemed like a nice way to end the series.
I hope to see you later today for the John Lennon music special on Mushroom FM.
