BBC wants interview with deceased Bob Marley
The BBC asked reggae legend Bob Marley for an interview almost 24 years after his death.
The British channel admitted that it was an “embarrassing error”. “It was a realy stupid mistake. Especially with April fools!”, according to the statement.
The request for the interview was made to the Bob Marley Foundation, and was part of a series of requests to artists for a show on radio channel BBC3.
The BBC requested the interview by e-mail with a standard text. This e-mail was sent to hundreds of receivers. According to the BBC the Bob Marley Foundation had a pretty good laugh, but the channel apologized nevertheless.
