A new pay-per-view program will exploit John Lennon's memory and the "EVP" phenomenon brought into mainstream attention by a recent movie, by claiming to channel Lennon's spirit through EVP.
EVP is based on a belief that spirit voices communicate through radio and TV broadcast signals.
"On the television show, filming at La Fortuna suddenly stops and a narrator says something odd has happened. They then claim that a mysterious voice can be heard on the voice feed of one of the psychics.
The producers then call in "EVP specialist" Sandra Belanger to examine the voice and she proclaims it the real deal.
"The Spirit of John Lennon" is being done without the knowledge or consent of Lennon's estate or his widow Yoko Ono, who declined comment. Her longtime friend and spokesman Elliot Mintz has called the entire exercise "tacky, exploitative and far removed" from the icon's way of life.
"A pay-per-view seance was never his style," said Mintz.
