A cassette featuring an unreleased song by Beatle legend John Lennon is up for auction today in Copenhagen. The song “Radio Peace”, which was never released, can be heard in the recording of 1970. The total value of the 33-minute cassette tape, recorded after a press conference, is estimated at 27 thousand to 40 thousand euros.
According to auction house Bruun Rasmussen, the record was made by four men who attended the press conference in Denmark when they were children at school. Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono spent a few weeks on the west coast of Denmark in the winter of 1969/70.

At the time of recording, the Beatles had recorded their last album, “Abby Road,” and although it wasn’t official, the group parted ways. Although Lennon and Ono spent their first week in Denmark in disguise, the press found out and the singer organized a press conference to coincide with the first day of the school year.
Carsten Huegen, one of the current owners of the register, was a student at the time. He and his friends convinced the headmaster that they could skip class to talk to the singer about peace and music. The recording was made during a conversation between students, Lennon and Ono on January 5, 1970.
