    It was 35 years ago today that Mark Chapman murdered John Lennon, he may have taken the man from us but Lennon's musical legacy lives on.

    Yep it is....seems like Yesterday !

    Agreed. Big fan of the Beatles and had just got in to John Lennon as a solo artist-had bought the albums Shaved Fish and Double Fantasy. Remember crying when I heard the news as a 14 year old lad Hurt

    A "Kennedy" moment for many of our era Boris. I was 15, and puzzled as to why the usually jolly Mike Reed was hardly speaking between tracks until I heard the 8.30 am news on Radio 1.
