Hard To Believe!

I would never make this kind of mistake!

Marley Interview Requested 24 Years After His Death
LONDON (Reuters) – The British Broadcasting Corporation sent an e-mail requesting an interview with reggae star Bob Marley, 24 years after his death.
The publicly funded broadcaster confessed on Friday it was “very embarrassed” by the mix-up which appeared in an e-mail to the Bob Marley Foundation.
“We are obviously very embarrassed that we didn’t realize that the letter to the Marley Foundation did not acknowledge that Mr. Marley is no longer with us,” said a BBC statement.
The Bob Marley Foundation was not immediately available for comment, but the BBC said it had laughed off the mistake.
“The Marley Foundation have been extremely good humored about this and we have apologized for the error.”
It said the mistake occurred in a standard letter the BBC sent out to hundreds of “icons and musicians” it wanted to take part in a series on digital channel BBC-3.
The approach followed the success of BBC-3 documentary “The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody” about the classic track by rock group Queen.
A BBC spokeswoman said the statement was not an April Fool hoax.
“It’s a genuine mistake … today of all days,” she said.
Marley died from cancer in 1981 aged just 36. The 60th anniversary of his birth in Jamaica was celebrated in Addis Ababa earlier this year in an event attended by more than 200,000 Ethiopians who shared the legend’s Rastafarian faith.
The BBC-3 program was to have concentrated on Marley’s hit song “No Woman, No Cry.”
