John Lennon: The Tribute. Today is the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death. And to mark the occasion, Icon Fetch’s Tony Peters presents a weeklong tribute to the genius, featuring interviews with rockers Tommy James, Gary Wright, Marshall Crenshaw and The Raspberries guitarist Wally Bryson, as well as John’s “lost weekend” ladylove, May Pang. On tonight’s two-hour live edition of the series, Tony will take calls from fans who want to share their own memories of the slain Beatle. Plus: Wally treats us to the world premiere of The Rasperries’ cover of the Fab Four’s No Reply.
Jill Clayburgh: The Lost Interview. The Starting Over and An Unmarried Woman star, who passed away last month at age 66 after a long battle with leukemia, spoke with Milling About host Robin Milling in 2001 about the state of comedy in Hollywood. “It really irritates me when I watch TV and I see these women just demonized in their 60s—like they’re stupid and old,” she said.

Petey Pablo: The Southern hip-hop artist, who charted with such boppy tracks as Raise Up, Freak-a-Leek and Goodies—and who, during the ‘90s, did six years in the slammer on armed-robbery charges— drops in on Mutha Knows host Mutha to talk about his latest musical projects.

Jill Schoelen: The ‘80s scream queen, who starred in such silver-screen fare as Thunder Alley, The Stepfather and The Bite, chats with The S Word host Shannon Baether about her co-stars in the 1989 murder mystery Cutting Class—Roddy McDowall and (yes!) Brad Pitt.
Beth Hoffman: The best-selling author (who was born on an elevator during a snowstorm and grew up on a farm in Ohio) drops in on Book Club Girl to chat about her debut novel, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt, which People magazine has called an “engaging Southern-girl-power fix.”
