Take a Trip in the Rye Catcher Time Machine

March 21st, 2006

Last December, I wrote a short article on the 25th anniversary of John Lennon’s murder, and published Jim Barber’s tribute poem for you. On the same day I posted that, the WFMU Blog posted something far more interesting: a link to a recording some unknown person made that night, scanning the FM dial with his receiver. The recording is about six minutes long, in MP3 format. Virtually every radio station in the recording is either playing a Lennon/Beatles tune, or a news report about Lennon. Give it a listen, it’s fascinating. (Seen on TechBlog.)
