This Wednesday's edition of “Every Little Thing” show hosted by Ken Michaels will be expanded to three hours to include a 90-minute special featuring an interview with Julian Lennon, who will talk about his latest album, "Everything Changes," and his musical career, host Michaels said in an interview Sept. 29.
"Julian was a pure joy to talk to,” Michaels said. “He makes for a great interview because he's candid, insightful, and very revealing about himself. We talked mainly about the new album and also discussed the songwriting process, his collaborators, musical influences, how he remembers his early success, and more.”
Michaels says one of his favorite moments in the interview is Lennon's commenting on the very personal song "Guess It Was Me," which deals with self-realization and recognizing his blaming of others for his own problems.
"When it comes down to it at the end of the day it's you that says 'yes' or 'no' to anything that happens to you in most respects, so you've got to hold yourself accountable for that,” he told Michaels. “If you're going to grow and you want to be happy in life with yourself and with the decisions you make, you've got to be understanding of that, and you can't be in a position where you're going to regret things all the time, so I think the more honest you are with yourself, the less that is likely to be the case."
Lennon also talks about how the lyric from "Baby You're A Rich Man" ("How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people") came to be in the song "Someday" from the new album. Steven Tyler guest stars on the song.
The full broadcast airs Wednesday night on 88.7 WNHU, West Haven, CT, 8-11 p.m. ET, which you can stream at www.wnhu.net. The Julian Lennon special airs from 9:30 to 11 p.m. The Lennon interview will also be posted on Michaels' website.
