AKOM PRESENTS: Pizza and Fairytales
A new 4-part series on Lennon & McCartney in the 1970s!
Although the Beatles are effectively broken up by 1970, Lennon and McCartney spend the next decade proving they are anything but disengaged from one other. The magnetic push and pull between these two friends keeps them orbiting each other – sometimes smoothly, sometimes not.
Despite some rocky moments, there is an enduring desire for reunion on both sides, with John and Paul each trying to feel their way toward a mutually agreeable, new kind of partnership.
They continually communicate to each other through song, just as they have since the very beginning. Their songs give voice to feelings of regret, anger, and anguish – as well as yearning, hope, reassurance, and love.
In this series, we’ve dug deep to uncover what happened between them, what happened around them, and why they were ultimately unable to reunite.
Listen to our essay and decide for yourself.
