George Harrison & Michael Jackson BBC interview set to air

A 1979 radio conversation between  Michael Jackson  and  George Harrison , long considered lost, has been found. And the tape will air Saturday as part of a  BBC radio  documentary.

Amazingly, the network only kept a four-minute highlight of the legendary session. Fortunately, a producer found a clean copy on the collector's circuit.

Just before the release of  Off the Wall,  Jackson sat down with Harrison and BBC radio host   David "Kid" Jensen . More a relaxed chat than high-powered interview, the two legends discussed music, with Jackson, just beginning to write his own songs after a decade of fame, fascinated by the creative freedom  The Beatles  claimed from the beginning.

Michael Jackson asked George Harrison about The Beatles having the freedom to write their own material, for the most part:

Michael: Did you guys always write you own stuff, I mean, from the beginning?...

George: "Yeah, well John and Paul wrote right from before ever made records?...

Michael: "How did you ever manage that?...

George: "I don't know, they were clever little fellows... [laughs]... But we did record, the first two albums, we recorded about half the albums were other people's songs. Like we did a lot of cover versions, of... like we did 'Twist and Shout.'" ...

Michael: "Oh yeah...

George: "Isley Brothers....

Jensen: "'Matchbox."

George: "Matchbox,' we did all kinds of... and some more obscure tunes, we did 'Money,' too

Jensen: "'Dizzy Miss Lizzy'...

George: "Ah yeah, sure we did a lot of other people's songs... in the early days."
