Buongiorno, and welcome to a very special episode of Paul or Nothing.

In a break from the regular format, where we have someone who actually has something to do with the McCartney or The Beatles, but today I am going to abuse to format and my abilit yto book guests as I interview one of my own personal podcasting heroes, Vik Singh.

Vik hosts "Podabing", which is the definitive companion podcast to HBO's "The Sopranos". "Podabing" features both meticulous episode-by-episode deep dives as well as incredibly inightful and informative interviews with the cast and crew of the show. Links down below...

We do touch on some Beatle-based stuff, but I hope you stick around just to enjoy the chat. 

Please enjoy. Hare Krishna. Peace and love.

Hello there everyone, and welcome back to another episode of Paul or Nothing!

If you haven't already guessed from the title, this will be the second instalment of our analysis of Paul McCartney's 1986 album Press to Play. As per usual, this second part will focus (mostly) on the songs featured on the album as we go through them one by one.

This is an interview I have had in the can for a while now, and I am really excited that I can finally share it with you all. As always Ken was a delight to have on the show, and his ability to tirelessly talk McCartney and Beatles with me is a privilege I hold very dear.

Please enjoy. Peace and love. Hare Krishna.

 

Check out Ken's radio show, "Every Little Thing", as well as all manner of exclusive interviews with the likes of Mark Lewisohn, Denny Laine, and basically every other guest too big to come on this podcast! Find all that and more at https://kenmichaelsradio.com/about-ken.html.

Greetings fellow Paul bearers and welcome to the first of two instalments that explore Paul McCartney's 1986 album, 'Press to Play'. This is an album that, apparently, is the worst effort that Macca has ever put to print. Well, let's put that to the test shall we?

In this episode we cover... 

  • McCartney's Decline in Popularity 
  • Linda's Drug Bust
  • Live Aid
  • Eric Stewart vs Hugh Padgham, aka "The Producers".
  • The recording of the album.
  • The album artwork.
  • The critical reception.
  • ....and I will not be covering Give My Regards to Broadstreet, even though it did technically happen during this period. That is all coming in a future episode!

This has been another one of those episodes that has taken far too long to come out, but I hope the wait was worth it! Please enjoy....

Hey everyone, and welcome back to a side-series where we are discussing every music video and promotion clip that Paul has released since 1970.

After concluding the last episode with the videos from London Town, we now get to talk about Wings' second TV special where they would perform seven songs, plus one non-album single from their upcoming 979 release, Back to the Egg. Wish me luck folks...

Please enjoy. Hare Krishna. Peace and love.

Hello goodbye everyone, and welcome to another special interview on this episode of Paul or Nothing. This week we speak (exclusively) with frequent McCartney collaborator, photographer and director Brantley Gutierrez!

You may know him as the director of Macca's "Who Cares music video...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WOb6ePqjIE 

Brantley is an incredible artist, cinephile and musician in his own right, and his insights into McCartney's creative process were invaluably fascinating. He was a delight to talk to, and don't worry folks...he's a big Beatle fan. Please enjoy.

Peace and love.

A hoy hoy everyone, today me and good friend of the show, Mr. Tom Kwei, will be taking a trip to Springfield for an opportunity to not only talk more Macca talk, but also the greatest comedy of all time, The Simpsons.

McCartney's now-iconic turn with televisions favourite animated family is one of my favourite moments of the show, and I always knew they is was going to be an episode I wanted to cover.

Please enjoy this live, face-to-face episode of the show, and forgive the shared mic.

Peace and love.

Hey everyone, I know this semi-animated concert film has been out for a while now, but alas, I could not afford the massive Wings 1971-71 box set. However, thanks to our Patreon supporters I could afford to rent it off iTunes which is the next best thing. Hope you all enjoy folks. The Wings are here!

Peace and love..
