Dick Cavett Show, The: John Lennon & Yoko Ono Collection
John Lennon and Yoko Ono appeared on The Dick Cavett Show three times. Clearly, they enjoyed their time with Cavett as these television interviews stand out as their most relaxed and in-depth.
Clearly they enjoyed being with Cavett. They even cast him in one of their films. The September 11, 1971, show is notable as the first American television interview John gave after the breakup of The Beatles. So comfortable were the Lennons that after the show was over they continued talking with Cavett. The additional portions of that first interview were shown as part of The Dick Cavett Show on September 24, 1971. During that visit they'd discussed coming back and giving a live performance. True to there word, for their appearance on Cavett's show on May 11, 1972, they returned with Elephants Memory and each sang one song.
