The Beatles Era – By Ray Connolly & Alan Benson

The Beatles Era – By Ray Connolly & Alan Benson


About the show

Playing tracks by

Harry Nilsson, John lennon, Jim Carey, The Everly Brothers, The Beatles .

Screenplay Writer, Music Journalist, Novelist, and Playwright Ray Connolly wrote his own music column for the London Evening Standard from 1967 until 1973. During this time he struck up a unique and warm friendship with the Beatles, and John Lennon in particular. In 1980 Ray was invited to interview John by Yoko just two days before he was shot dead. Many years later Ray wrote a play about this for BBC Radio 4. (This section runs for 45 mins.)

This section follows on from Ray Connolly....
Film maker Alan Benson made a fine Beatles documentary back in 1992 called The 25th Anniversary of The Making Of Sgt Pepper's ( The Making of Sgt Pepper) that led to the series Classic Albums, which started in 1994. Alan also made In My Life Sgt Peppers (reprise) in 2002 with George Martin.
