Episode 1: Jack Douglas

The first podcast for American Masters: LENNONYC features Jack Douglas talking about his long relationship with John Lennon including his time producing Double Fantasy. A highlight of the interview is Douglas’ account about a probable Beatles reunion for a Ringo album slated to be recorded in early 1981. According to Douglas, Lennon had told him both he and Paul McCartney had signed on to the album and each had written original songs for Ringo. Lennon’s songs, “Stepping Out” and “Nobody Told Me” instead appeared on Lennon’s posthumous album, Milk and Honey.
