So in the spirit of the show I thought it would be best to delay the release of both our Cold Cuts and London Town episodes for me to indulge myself in translating the most popular post from the blog into an actual show for you today!

Come join me as I attempt to prove that hating on Linda isn't all its cracked up to be, and that the McCartney sound is ever indebted to her.

You can find the blog and many other McCartney articles at www.paulmccartneypod.wordpress.com

The first of our 'gig reviews', where we will be picking a gig at random and reviewing it entirely out of context. Is this fair...nope! If you like this episode and want to see more, please let me know ASAP.

Join us as we explore Wings' final ever live performance at the Concert for Kampuchea (Cambodia), where Macca must assemble an Avengers level line up. All for charity of course!

A little something extra for you here folks. For the first time ever we have a guest back on the show! We are once again joined by McCartney author Luca Perasi, who we had back on our first ever bonus episode.

So the original plan was to have Luca join me for the full 'Wings at the Speed of Sound' but due to conflciting schedules I thought it best just to have a companion chat to the album. Come listen as we discuss anything and everything surrounding Wings 1976 album.

Luca is the author of the acclaimed Macca bible, 'Paul McCartney: The recording sessions 1970-2013", which is available on Amazon and in all good book stores. He also has another book on all the fab fours post-Beatle careers in the pipeline!

Welcome back Paul-bearers across the globe. Join us for a very special bonus episode, where this week I have the pleasure of interviewing on of YouTubes rising stars, rising Beatle content stars that is. Hosted by Aneil Maharaj, The HollyHobs is one of the best series of videos I have found in the research for this show. His videos are inishgtful, well made and tap into an oft overlooked or underappeciated element of a Beatles song. We talk everything from his massive Yoko Ono video which went viral overnight, to annoying our respective partners with constant Beatles-based analogies. 

I also brought Aneil on the show to discuss the upcoming 50th anniversary release of the Beatles seminal 1966 album, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. We discuss what songs still hold up, which don't and whether spending $50+ on any CD is worth it.

You can find all of Mr HollyHobs videos on his Youtube page at...

And of course you can find him on Twitter...

Join us once more as Sam works his way through interviewing everyone on his book shelf. Today we discuss 'Lennon and McCartney: Together Alone' which is a book pretty much made for this podcast, as well as 'Beatles For Sale: How Everything They Touched Turned To Gold' which catalouges the endless list of hucksters, skysters and thieves trying to captolise of the success of the Fab Four.

John Blaney has no website, which is a crime really, and we discuss that in the show but please check out all of his work which you can find online and in all good book shops.
