McCartney Calls Into L.A. Radio Station To Thank Them For Playing His Music

Paul McCartney called into a Los Angeles university radio station recently to personally thank them for playing his music.

"Paul McCartney called today to express his appreciation of KCSN and to thank us for our support of his new record," station program director Sky Daniels tells Pop & Hiss. "He told us he was having dinner in L.A. last night and all of his 'friends were raving about KCSN, telling me how you were playing multiple tracks from the album.'"

The unexpected phone call ended up lasting for an hour and turned into a full-blown interview with the former Beatle. A few of the topics he discussed were the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and his recent project composing music for an animated film.

"Paul's call was so thoughtful, I found myself fighting back tears," Daniels said. "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."
