Virginradio Paul McCartney Day Dec 3rd

        Friday 3rd December will be Paul McCartney Day on VirginRadio.Com, with the site playing host to an exclusive interview with this century's most important popular songwriter, Paul McCartney. 'McCartney In Sound And Vision' will feature an online audio interview with Sir Paul and Virgin Radio DJs Pete Mitchell and Geoff Lloyd. Fans will also have access to full-length videos of recent single No Other Baby, as well as footage of McCartney and his band playing live in New York.

        This exclusive 'McCartney In Sound And Vision' experience will give fans worldwide an irresistible insight into Sir Paul's thoughts on his latest work Run Devil Run. It will also offer a full breakdown of his album, discographies for The Beatles, Wings and his other solo albums.

        Fans will also have the chance of winning McCartney collectors' items for a very limited time period. Up for grabs will be signed singles, signed albums, and lithographs of the Run Devil Run sleeve design for McCartney devotees. Visitors will be able to enter all three competitions.

        The album page - featuring a 1960s jukebox - will offer a choice of unique and as yet, unseen, two-minute video clips of Sir Paul describing each song from his current album, Run Devil Run. Each clip covers the history of the song as described by McCartney himself and a 30-second sample of the track.

        John Ousby, Director at Ginger Online says "The content going live online on Nov. 29 is an absolute fest for Beatles and McCartney followers everywhere. We wanted to reward Virgin Radio fans with something really amazing - visitors won't be disappointed".

Paul on Parkinson, Dec. 3rd

Graham Calkin reminds us:

"25 years ago, Paul McCartney and Michael Parkinson made a deal. Parkinson agreed to appear in a photo shoot for an album cover, and in return Paul agreed to appear on the "Parkinson" show. At the time the Parkinson show was England's foremost chat show, with Michael`s relaxed style guaranteed to attract all the top names, and that is still true today. The album was of course, "Band On The Run", and 25 years on the deal is sealed with Paul appearing on the Parkinson show, this Friday December 3rd on BBC1 at 9:30. The show is scheduled for 1 hour and five minutes, and there are no other guests listed. It will be Paul`s first major interview since the death of Linda. Paul will talk about the madness of Beatlemania, his life and career, as well as performing some of his classic songs. "

Heather Mills Charity Single

Heather Mills' charity single will become available in December. Paul McCartney was very much envolved in this recording, so you must check it out. The single can be previewd (with real audio!) at (click on releases!).

Report: Paul at Bond Premiere, Nov. 23

Graham Calkin tells us:

"Yesterday (Tuesday 23rd) Paul appeared at London's Imax cinema, as he helped to launch the new charity Christmas Single credited to Heather Mills, with whom he has been romantically linked recently. Paul sings backing vocals on the song, called "Voice", which is out in England in December. The release is aimed to raise funds and awareness of Heather's disability charity, the "Heather Mills Health Trust" of which Paul has reportedly donated 150,000 to the charity. Heather, aged 31, who lost a leg when hit by a motorcycle policeman in 1993, fuelled rumours by commenting, "Paul is an attractive man and we're very close. He is interested in this project and in me."

Sir Paul also posed for the nation's press with Heather, but kept her sister Fiona and her friend Helen Smith (who lost an arm and both legs through meningitis) between them. "

Report: Paul on National Lottery Show, Nov. 13

Graham Calkin tells us:

"Paul performed three numbers, again almost repeating his choice of tracks as performed on "Later with Jools" ... Brown-eyed Handsome Man, No Other Baby, and finally, Party. No Other Baby was performed without Lulu on backing vocals, she did join in on the others.
        The sound quality was very poor though, with the BBC preferring to add the baying crowd's "hand-claps" to the output. Paul seems keen to get out and promote "Run Devil Run", and with the large audience figures involved with Britains "National Lottery" show, he was sure to get maximum coverage, but dare I say it, in my opinion Paul didnt look too happy with the occassion.
