BROADCAST JOURNALIST INTERVIEWER HOST MODERATOR
Early December is always the saddest time of year in New York. Actually, any day that brings to mind the tragic events of December 8, 1980 is a sad day. 40 years have hardly eased the pain of the loss of John Lennon. Here are three interviews I conducted on the subject for 1010 WINS all news radio in New York. Alan Weiss was a local television news producer in 1980 and one of the few who was actually an eyewitness to some of John Lennon’s last moments. Beatles author Kenneth Womack has written a terrific book about John Lennon’s 1980 musical comeback entitled “John Lennon 1980: The Last Days in the Life.” And Bob Gruen was not only a well known rock ‘n roll photographer who took some of the most iconic photos of John. He was John and Yoko’s friend. I hope you enjoy these conversations: some happy memories at a sad time. #johnlennon #johnlennonforever
I’m happy to announce that I will be hosting two events (virtually) at the 92nd St. Y in early December for my new series “New York Then New York Now with Budd Mishkin.”
On December 3rd, I’ll be in conversation with broadcast journalism icon Dan Rather.
And on December 10th, I’ll be in conversation with the editor of The New York Times crossword puzzle and NPR’s puzzlemaster, Will Shortz.
Buying a ticket will help one of the great cultural institutions in the country, the 92nd St. Y.
Have a happy Thanksgiving and I hope to see you all virtually in December.
