"This is the most famous of John Lennon's radio appearances to promote "Walls and Bridges" On September 28, 1974, he dropped into WNEW studios and joined Dennis Elsas on his afternoon program. John talked about the new album, the Beatles, their solo careers, and his immigration problems. He played some new tracks as well as some favorite oldies. You can tell John was having fun as he was talking to Dennis, spun records, did commericals and news. ENJOY a moment in history.

Review by: Rob BlackburnOn 26 Apr 2004 at 21:11 CEST
Excellent and unique content: John talks music! He's really into how music borrows from itself to create new forms, and illustrates this by playing albums from his personal collection. There are so many cool bits to this interview. For instance, he notes that the stereo mixing of the Blue and Red Albums were in his opinion terrible! Overall John seems very natural, warm and conversational.
Review by: JoeIOn 14 Oct 2007 at 00:41 CEST
I recall listening to this in replay mode that very next day after it originally aired and am just as trilled to listen to this CD again now. John sounds very comfortable and at ease with himself as he previews the Walls and Bridges album. Ironically he mentions that he is big fan of ELO and Jeff Lynne later produced his Free as a Bird song for the Anthology project. The best bits are John showing how some of the key riffs are reused. A must have for all JL fans!
Review by: BEATLEDOOD55On 17 Oct 2007 at 05:36 CEST
This is the best John Lennon spoken word cd available. He was candid and
very funny as usual. He was a great DJ too! Find disc 2 as well. This is a
must have set. I've listened to this for years and never get tired of it.

In late October 2010, a more complete version with bonus tracks began to circulate. These are the notes from the compiler [a big thank you for his work!]

About this set

Audio sources broadcast:
main source: “Listen To This Radio Show” (CD x 2 boot: Mad Scot records).
*additional chat: “John Lennon – In His Life” (“Multimedia” CD – track 2) some grey label (wav)
**replaced songs: disc 1, tracks 14 & 16, incomplete on Mad Scot boot (respectively mp3 & flac)
The Mad Scot copy of the show is of good quality and almost complete, as it contains the records played on that
occasion. The sound quality of the Multimedia CD “John Lennon – In His Life” is about the same (although at higher
speed) but the songs have been removed (to avoid copyright infringement). Still, it contains a few sections of chat that
do not appear on the Mad Scot release. Finally, the end of two songs on Listen To This Radio Show are missing
(“Save The Last Dance For Me” and “Gravy Train”).
Here is the result of some reconstruction work, inserting bits of the (pitched down) Multimedia CD onto the Mad Scot
copy and replacing the copies of “Save the last Dance” and “Gravy train” by complete ones.
Here is where the additional bits of chat are located on the present set:
Disc 1 track 13 - between Marvin Gaye was on his own and you’ve been producing [0’41” – 1’30”]
Disc 1 track 15 - (a) from great chamber echo to this is the weather, folks [0’00 – 0’19”]; (b) from shall we do the
commercials? to that place’s just near to Record Plant [0’49” – 1’54”]; (c) between at the rate we get paid now and we gonna play some Splinter [4’19” – 4’24”]
Disc 2 track 11 – between here’s a nice whopper commercial and Hi! We’re on the air and it’s one minute passed half
passed five [0’37” – 1’13”]
Note: this still is not the complete broadcast; but it’s quite likely that the bits not involving John Lennon in anyway were left out.


About the songs

John says having “brought four singles” (from his private collection) to play during the show. Three of them are Watch
Your Step by Bobby Parker (1/06), Some Other Guy by Richie Barrett (2/04) and Daddy Rollin’ Stone by Derek Martin
(2/10). The fourth one may well have been I Am The Walrus (UK EP). Or was it ELO? Marvin Gaye? Only the Shadow
knows....
All songs (versions) played that day were identified, except for What’d I Say by Ray Charles (disc 2 track 5).
This live version is same as released in 2009 on “Genius – the Ultimate Ray Charles” CD.
Quite likely it comes from the ABC- Paramount LP released in 1965 “Live In Concert”, which to my knowledge is not
yet available on CD. That album (partially?) covered a performance by Ray Charles and his band at the Shrine
Auditorium, Los Angeles, California in September 1964. Despite searching internet (wasting my time), was not able to confirm that…


BONUS TRACKS : Linking the licks : “What’d I Say”, “Watch Your Step” etc…
In this program, John says “What’d I Say seemed to be the start of all the guitar lick records, because none of us had
an electric piano, so we all did it on guitar; just tryin’ to get that low sound. And before that, everything was mainly licks, like you get on Little Richard’s rock’n’roll records like Lucille, where the sax section and the guitar played it.
And What’d I Say started a whole new ball game which is still going now”.

When introducing Watch Your Step:
“This is early sixties record by Bobby Parker called Watch Your Step; which I call “son of What’d I Say”. Mean it was a
great record by Ray Charles, which is the first electric piano I’ve ever heard, on tape; cause no one could ever work
out what it was on record. And then shortly after, mean it could have been a year, because it all blends in; but this is the next move, after What’d I Say….”

Again, when introducing Some Other Guy:
“This is another one I call “son of What’d I say”, “son of Watch your step”, “son of lick records”.
Back to Watch Your Step by Bobby Parker: John says having “used that lick” (riff) in various forms (I Feel Fine, Day
Tripper). He also mentions a recent performance by the Allman Brothers. In fact the latter is a cover of “One Way Out” by Sonny Boy Williamson II.

While in most reviews/articles both songs by Sonny Boy Williamson II and Bobby Parker were vaguely reported as
being released in (early) 1961, I got to wonder which one was first; knowing that Bobby Parker complained the
recognition for his influence came in a little late. Some further search did not reveal the exact (first) release date of his single in the US but according to the V-Tone catalogue, the 24 singles released in 1960 were numbered from 207 to 230. “Watch Your Step / Steal Your Heart Away” being numbered 223 (17th single that year), one can assume it was first released in US (end?) Autumn 1960. In UK, it was first released under London label, July 1961 (HLU 0303), then again in October 1964 by Sue Records (WI 340).
As for Sonny Boy Williamson II, his single “Nine Below Zero / One Way Out” was first released in the US by Chess
records (checker 975) on 14 December 1960. So, apparently, Bobby Parker was first, indeed…

When listing relations between these songs, John omitted Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin, an almost note-to-note
rendition of Bobby Parker’s riff by Jimmy Page, and no doubt more songs were made in that vein, of which I’m not
aware…
I thought some among you might find it handy to have all versions in one set, so I’ve added the recordings mentioned
here above which were not played during that show.
Also included as bonus is Lou Christie’s Litghtnin’ Strikes, referred to (in 1/10) as influence to ELO’s Showdown.


Audio sources – bonus tracks :
Sonny Boy Williamson II – Best of (flac)
the Beatles – Past Masters vol. 1 - original 1988 CD (wav)
Lou Chistie – Best of Lou Christie
Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin II – original CD (wav)
the Allman Brothers – The Fillmore Concert 1971 – remaster 1992 (flac)

Enjoy!

I got this a month ago and listened to it on Dec. 8th 2016, it cheered me up. great stuff ! If you wanna know more about the meeting and the offer to do this radio show to John and May Pang read "COME TOGETHER LENNON AND McCARTNEY IN THE 70S" by Richard White 2017 , theres a funny story about how the dj didn't think John would show up. He showed up with a handfull of 45s he wanted to play on air. John was in a great mood and loved being a dj.
