Melbourne (show day) and interview with Triple J radio – Tuesday 5th December

Today we are hosting Zan Rowe, a presenter from Australia’s alternative radio station Triple J. She’s here to record a special edition of a show called Take 5 where the interviewee chooses five songs from their catalogue to discuss in-depth. This is due to be broadcast the following morning. Zan had announced her visitor to her audience a few days earlier with a cute tweet that read: “In life changing news, I am beyond stoked to announce that Paul McCartney will be Taking 5 next week. On Wednesday at 10am. A special Take 5. Sir Paul will play five of his own songs, and talk in depth about their making. His Songbook. DED.”

After sound-checking within Melbourne’s huge AAMI Park stadium, where tonight he will play to a sell-out audience of 30,000-plus, it’s interview time. Paul invites Zan into his dressing room where the two chat way longer than the time I have allocated, but Paul is enjoying himself and it’s a great conversation. If he didn’t have the pressing matter of a show to do tonight it could go on forever. To listen to Paul talk about his songwriting process is incredible. All of us in the room – Charlie (Paul’s videographer), Ryan (the show’s producer) Zan and I – are captivated by the stories but sadly it must come to an end!

(The following morning, when the programme plays out, notable local musicians are tweeting their joy with one asking for it to never end. And when the station released the interview as a podcast, it immediately topped the iTunes podcast chart. I suggest you check it out HERE!

And with the interview wrapped up we leave Paul to ready himself for his show.

Needless to say, it is another unbridled success. The Herald Sun gushes: “Where else can you sing ‘A Day in the Life’ along with an actual Beatle?

‘At one point early on McCartney paused between songs to take in the audience, noting: ‘I’m gonna take a second for myself to drink it all in.

‘He would have seen what he no doubt witnesses each night — three generations all united by his music. Watching that pure communal joy nightly would surely explain his lack of retirement plans.”
