Lennon Month, stream #2

5.75 hours of new stuff on the links to your right, with a playlist.

Technical notes:
- "India" (track #81) had a gap at 2:23 which has been repaired.
- "Roll Over Beethoven" (#6) had been censored, with the lyric "drive her further" completely cut out.  Somehow, they managed to excise it while leaving the time signature intact.  In honor of that, I didn't attempt a smooth-over where it goes a little haywire but still seems to stay on the beat.
- On a somewhat similar note, families are advised of adult content on You Gotta Save Yourself (Track #34, identified on the playlist as "air_1999.2").  We apologize, and are trying to determine where John learned such language.

Sources of this month's stream:
- John Lennon Birthday airchecks, multiple years, provided by collectors.

- The amazing Internet Archive site.

Lord Buckley: Governor Slugwell

The original version of this had a gap at 1m 14s: The Gap
I restored the audio: No Gap
And it's missing the part at the beginning where the lady asks him if he wants the fan on.  I regretted trimming that, but it helps distinguish this version from the original.
He doesn't want the fan on

Worst New Flavor of the Year

Brexit: Scottish judges rule the prorogation of Parliament is unlawful:

Update Sep 24: The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has unanimously declared the suspension of Parliament is illegal and of no effect.  Parliament has not been prorogued!  Amateur rogues, only.
