It was 40 years ago when The Music Stopped

We were living on 38th Avenue in San Francisco.

This is the song I heard when I turned on NPR  Morning Edition the morning after John Lennon was murdered.

I had a flu and went to bed around 7PM the night before and slept through the night.

I awoke to this…

I knew what happened the moment I heard the song at 7AM and then Bob Edwards came on the air…

All the photos are from the Time Magazine issue I have kept the past 40 years.
