"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Interview from a couple of years ago with Drowned in Sound about the Ram reissue. It was quoted out of context by other publications like the Daily Mail at the time, so I thought it might be good to link to it for those who haven't read the original. It's a great interview. I was particularly intrigued by his account of the influence of A Teenage Opera and Till There Was You on his songwriting.

Paul called a radio station to thank them for playing songs from his New album. The call turned into an hour-long interview. Such sweetness in this article.

Apparently, Sir Paul had been in Los Angeles shooting a new video for the song “Early Days” the day before, and spent the evening with “friends at dinner” according to Weindorf. Those friends regaled Paul with stories about KCSN, and how the station had been an active supporter of his new album “New”. McCartney called the label and asked how he could contact the station to say thanks.

“Paul’s call was so thoughtful, I found myself fighting back tears”, said Daniels. “He told us of how his friends all loved the station, and they told him that KCSN was playing a number of songs from “New” and he simply wanted to say thanks”.  The call turned into an hour long interview with McCartney discussing the emotional wave that The Beatles 50th anniversary had created in him, his appreciation for the multiple Grammy awards that he has just won, and how happy he was knowing that he felt he had a “real band” with his long-time touring group, Brian Ray, Rusty Anderson, Wix Wickens and Abe Laboriel, Jr.

McCartney disclosed that he was excited to begin work on a new project, doing the music for a new animated film, “It’s like being a kid getting to play with some of the most creative people in the world”, and how the thrill he gets from fan’s reactions means so much to him. “When people tell you that you wrote the ‘soundtrack to their life’, that’s pretty meaningful.”

Daniels echoed that sentiment, saying, “When Paul McCartney’s friends sing the praises of KCSN, and he feels compelled to listen and reach out to say thanks, it validates the support of our members and the hard work of our staff.  It really is a statement that radio can still touch hearts and minds, even those of the greatest songwriter of our time.”

Crap, the one day I wasn't listening to KCSN. This is the station that played "Appreciate" when I requested it during their drive. Thanks for sharing, AG.
