John Lennon at 81


John Ono (né Winston) Lennon was born October 9, 1940.

To mark what would have been Lennon's 81st birthday, we'll listen to tracks from some of the recent anniversary re-issues of his solo and Beatles recordings, along with Lennon-centric Beatles covers from Bay Area artists and beyond – Saturday, October 9 at 8 pm.
