Sean Lennon will be interviewing Paul McCartney, Elton John, and his half-brother Julian Lennon for a BBC Radio special commemorating what would have been his father's 80th birthday. Rolling Stone reported the John Lennon At 80 radio show will be broadcast in two 60-minute installments on October 3rd and 4th, at 4 p.m. ET on BBC Radio 2.
McCartney will discuss his friendship and partnership with Lennon and perform a bit of the early-unreleased Lennon/McCartney original, “Just Fun.” Elton's segment has him recalling biking eight miles in 1967 to purchase the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
According to the show's synopsis: “Both (Lennon's sons) recall time spent in the studio at different points in John's solo career — Julian during the making of the Walls And Bridges album in 1974, and Sean during the recording of Double Fantasy, shortly before John's death in December 1980. They chat warmly about their memories of growing up as John Lennon's son and how that reflected on their own musical careers.”
