The 15 kg portable jukebox, owned by
Lennon around 40 years ago, was bought by the late Bristol music promoter John
Midwinter for just £2,500 at a Christie's sale of Beatles memorabilia in 1989.
He then spent years restoring it to working order and researching its 41 discs.
Listed in Lennon's handwriting, they are effectively the Desert Island Discs
which helped shape his musical genius.
