A new coffee-table scrapbook which tells the story of the incredible week in 1972 when the Mike Douglas Show was co-hosted by John Lennon and Yoko Ono is now available. It's called "Never Before and Never Again: The TV Booking of the Century."
At the helm of this project was Michael Krauss, the executive producer of the Mike Douglas Show at the time, and the idea man behind booking John and Yoko. He has compiled a collection of personal memorabilia which he shares with Beatles and John Lennon fans in this new book.

The book includes never before seen photos of John Lennon from behind the scenes of the Mike Douglas Show that will be suitable for framing. The photos aren't simply screenshots from the shows, they offer new views and insights to this monumental occasion.
Also included will be letters from celebrities praising the shows, a certificate from the Museum of Broadcasting inducting the shows, and a script treatment that was optioned by Paramount Pictures to become a major motion picture.
"Never Before and Never Again: The TV Booking of the Century," an exclusive look into a very special episode of the life of John Lennon, is now on available for the price of $125 plus shipping and handling. Copies will be numbered so the earlier you order, the lower number you'll receive.
The book can be purchased directly from the author by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow for 4 to 6 weeks for shipping.

Michael Krauss was the producer of the Mike Douglas show at the time when John and Yoko co-hosted. He has lots of great stories from those good old days. As Mike Douglas producer, Mr. Krauss was actually the guy who had the idea to contact John and Yoko to appear on the show.

Micheal Krauss has decided to create a scrapbook-coffee table book type thing out of pictures, files, old interviews, and other memorabilia from those days. He's very close to having a final product, but isn't completely done yet. He's looking for some Beatles fans to come together as a focus group to discuss the product and help with its completion.
If you're a Beatles fan or a John Lennon fan and you're in or near Greenwich Connecticut and could help out next week (the first week in June), Michael would love to hear from you. Please contact his assistant, Jack Mckean, at email@example.com.
