The Mike Douglas Show with John Lennon, Yoko Ono & Chuck Berry [1972]

For one week in early 1972, national television talk show host Mike Douglas featured John Lennon and Yoko Ono as co-hosts. In addition to performing on the set and showing music videos of their own, Lennon and Ono were interviewed on part of each broadcast by Douglas. The highlights of this part include a short interview and duets between Chuck Berry and Lennon on “Memphis” and “Johnny B. Goode”; although Yoko insensitively puts in some of her avant-garde backing vocals at one point, Berry is gracious enough not to let on if he’s disturbed.
