Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 9/30/14 Lennon Receives Hollywood Star
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
Tonight, we look back on another day in Rock 'n' Roll history. 26 years ago today, John Lennon was posthumously given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You can find it on the east side of the 1700 block of Vine Street, if you're ever in the area sight seeing. It has become a gathering spot for fans and vigils on Lennon's birthday and the anniversaries of his death. It has also become a target for vandals and thieves since its dedication. Though it took a bit for Lennon to receive his honor, he was the first of The Beatles to get one individually. Coincidentally, George Harrison also received his posthumously in 2009, and Paul McCartney was the last Beatle to receive a star in 2012. Ringo's was dedicated in 2010.
Tonight, we'll feature a trio of songs from John Lennon to mark his day in history. Tune in for The Beatles' "I'm Only Sleeping", and the solo hits "Mind Games", and "Watching The Wheels". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
