The British press is reporting today that while he was in Los Angeles, Sir Paul surprised listeners by winning an on-air radio quiz. On his car radio, Sir Paul heard KLSX 97.1 FM D.J. Chris Carter ask his listeners to call and answer the questions, "What Beach Boys song does Sir Paul appear on eating a carrot?" When it appeared that no one was able to answer the question correctly, Sir Paul called the station, supplied the correct response (Vegetables) and won a bag of goodies signed by Paul McCartney! Rather than claim the prizes, Sir Paul asked Mr. Carter to give them to someone who might appreciate them more. His only request was that the D.J. play Here Today, the song he wrote in memory of John Lennon.
Chris Carter was happily stunned, "It was quite a surprise when Paul called up. He is very pleasant to talk to and told us to keep up the good work. There's not many megastars in the world who would do that."
