A 1970 cassette recording of John Lennon and Yoko Ono has been sold for $58,300 at an art sale in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 28, 2021. Four Danish teenagers produced the 33-minute audio track which featured an interview with the couple and a never-released song called Radio Peace. Officials expected that the cassette tape would be purchased by a museum or collector before it went on sale.

In January 1970, John Lennon and Yoko Ono flew to Denmark to visit the latter’s younger daughter Kyoko to ex-husband Anthony Cox. A group of schoolboys heard the news and persuaded their teachers to let them interview the pair for the school newspaper. Hoejen, one of the four teenagers, recalled that it took a long time for them to get to the venue where the pair was having a conference due to heavy snowfall. “As we arrived, everyone was leaving,” Luckily, the boys were invited to stay.

The teenage Hoejen taped the special moment, while his friend Jesper Jungersen took photographs. On the tape, Lennon and Yoko can be heard singing Christmas songs. In a response to the question, “How do you think that people like me can help you with making peace around the world?” Lennon replied, “Copy what we do. Think, ‘What can I do locally?” The rare item is now in the hands of an unknown buyer.
