Video-sharing culture has given visual life to a number of audio interviews from yesteryear. Here are my three favourites:
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatles fan called Jerry Levitan sneaked into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, the recording was edited down to 5 minutes and illustrated.
Here is an interview with Salavdor Dalí. I’ve no idea what it’s all about but it’s strangely captivating.
Only 271 no-hitters have been recorded in Major League Baseball. In this radio interview with Doc Ellis, pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, the player talks about the famous 1970 no-hitter that he threw against the San Diego Padres while under the influence of LSD.
