McCartney meets Cullum for BBC Radio 2

BBC Radio 2 is to broadcast a special interview between Paul McCartney and Jamie Cullum.

The feature will air on Jamie’s weekly jazz show this Tuesday, which is made by independent production company Folded Wing.

The in-depth interview, which the station says is a ‘very special listen’, includes chat about Paul’s brand new album, Kisses on the Bottom.

Paul talks to Jamie about the role jazz has played in his life, from growing up listening to his father’s jazz band to their mutual love of Fats Waller.

Jamie said: “Chatting to Sir Paul about jazz was a dream come true. Hearing all those amazing stories about The Beatles was incredible, I could have listened to Sir Paul all day. This is exactly why I love doing my BBC Radio 2 show so much!”

Lewis Carnie, Head of Programming for BBC Radio 2, says: “Jamie’s jazz show has become a key part of the Radio 2 schedule over the past 18 months, and I’d like to congratulate him on his forthcoming special with Paul McCartney as it’s a very special listen.”

Previous Jamie Cullum interviews for BBC Radio 2 have included two-part specials with Clint Eastwood and Dave Brubeck and special features with Nigel Kennedy, Kate Bush, Lars Ulrich, Wynton Marsalis and Pat Metheny.
