    Great review Brad. I was searching about this song and I found a picture of John Lennon with the Raspberries t-shirt.

      Thanks, Charlie! The Raspberries were great, an underrated band. Doesn’t surprise me that Lennon was a fan, because The Raspberries were carrying on in their footsteps. I’ve got a John Lennon episode coming up soon– hope you check it out!

        Thanks Brad. I’m looking forward to listen a George Harrison one someday…
        He will always be my favourite musician and hero.

          There’s a George Harrison episode in the works, you’ll see it sometime in the first half of 2021.
