Yoko Ono shares her musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast in 2016.

Yoko talks recalls the first time she became aware of music and other key moments in her life and career, most notably when she first met John Lennon. Already an established avant garde artist, she had a profound effect on John Lennon's experimental and psychedelic work throughout the late 60s, both in the Beatles and later in collaboration with Yoko in the Plastic Ono Band.
