Today’s show is very special, and disregards generic categories. The more I listen to Ono, the greater my appreciation for her work becomes. From performance to film to music–all radical activism–Ono is still a peace-presence and an anti-fascist.
Long live Yoko Ono!
Instead of displaying the playlist as I usually do, I am going to present to you Ono’s albums that speak to me the most, in the order in which I will play them on Saturday’s show.
