      One unusual bit of McCartney music I often recall is from 1974 when a new radio station opened in my home city of Manchester, England. It was called Piccadilly Radio and the evening show was presented by Andy Peebles, famously the last person to interview John Lennon. Paul composed a jingle for the station - the lyric was: Hello Piccadilly, hello Albert Square, hello Piccadilly, keep doing it on the air  !  Sadly no recording exists that I know of. What other oddities do people know of from the dustier corners of Paul's collection ?

        How about his "Now Hear This" promos for Ram?

            The last people to interview John were Laurie Kaye, Ron Hummel, Dave Sholin & Bert Keane who interviewed him for RKO Radio on the day he died.

              There are a few more too! I have them on a bootleg cd.

               

                There was an interview, I believe on MTV, in the 1980s, where Paul did a short rap which started something like this:

                "Yo, my name is Paul and I got more money than y'all"

                I think I had it on an old VHS tape, but can't find it anymore.
