Here’s a little holiday listening enjoyment for you.
Australia’s Radio National station (RN – part of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation) has just aired a great little documentary about the John Lennon song ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite!‘. It is part of their PocketDocs series.
You can listen to it here, or download it to your desktop to listen to later.
There’s also an article written by the documentary’s maker, Sunil Badami.
Thank you so much, this doco is very well researched and produced. Awesome how much information they have unearthed related to this old poster and a bit how imaginative they created an exciting listening experience inerconnecting all these stories and the song. And the even almost surpassed the obvious, i. e. directly comparing the poster and the song’s final lyrics.
Already a highlight of all the media frenzy which is to be expected to begin any time soon …
This is why live the radio.
