Today as the world remembers the violent and tragic death of John Lennon 30 years ago here are my audio contributions.
This is how Radio 4's Today programme reported the news on the morning of 9th December 1980.
First, Brian Redhead talks to Tom Brook, one of the first reporters on the scene.
Next a report by John Spicer, this includes the John Lennon's Radio 1 trailer for the interview he did with Andy Peebles.
From Radio 4's PM programme that same evening here's a report by Peter Marshall that includes George Martin and David Geffen.
Finally a short undated clip, possibly January 1981, of a Radio 1 news summary read by Bill Bingham.
