Non-WABRAD: 20th December, 1974

John and (mainly) George, interviewed in George's Manhattan hotel room (apparently) on 20th December 1974 (again apparently); broadcast the following day on NYC station KHJ AM.
I think the tape is a little slower than it should be - or else something has made George sound particularly lugubrious (not that there's anything wrong with that).
Relations were a little spiky by that point, as can be heard, though there is an amusing moment when John asks (referring to Ringo) "Who was the other one?" and George replies "Bert". I need not explain, I trust.
Was this the last time the two met face to face?
Thanks to Lizzie for the nod.


  1. Man, it leaves me with a bittersweet feeling listening to those two guys talking. Wish they had managed to keep their friendship going through the 70s.

  2. Did John ever visit Friar Park?
