Fruity Pierre ,

A wild and crazy ride into the life, mind & music of John Lennon

Antony’s vast knowledge of all things Lennon is the foundation of this brilliant podcast. He has managed to score interviews with some like minded Lennon enthusiasts and the flow of their discussions is a delight of both the sacred, profane and the silly. Well done Antony, I look forward to future episodes.
