Is Paul live or is this pre-recorded?

lol I just emailed one of the DJ's on radio 1 Scott Mills (any relation to Heather? ha)

Hey Radio 1

you guys are "off the hook" Im liken your station, tons! Im listening to you via my blog waiting on Macca an his DJ debut. a HUGE Macca/Beatle fan I am.Tell me is Paul spinnin vinyl or poppin in cds? lol ta harleyblues, Christina >from California, US Live chat here on Radio one here two minutes until Paul!!! the chat room is closed!

A Semi-narrative of Pauls show:

Paul bought his first record at "Currys" Be-Bop-a-lula by Gene Vincent. The Beach Boys "God Only Knows" is an emotional song for Paul, "it does it for me" said Paul, He loved singing it with Brian one of Brian wilsons best, a genius.

Paul states "I will never tire playing "Hey Jude" written for Julian Lennon, originally titled "Hey Jules." since Julian was going thru had family times. Paul digs the opening piano in Radioheads-Everything in its right place. Paul also fell in love with some music before his time, "his dads era" cheek to cheek by Fred Astire romantic and technically great said Paul.

Macca plays the Sex Pistols as his 7th song, right on Paul! a great song for its time "pretty Vacant". When Paul heard this next song on a radio show one night he said "it knocked his bloke off" hehehe good one. What did I say-by Ray Charles.

A Day in a Life was written by John Lennon & Paul from news paper snippets. They were banned from the BBC for the lyrics "4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire" as being to suggestive. Paul also says he likes todays bands who can play live the "killers" are one such band.

After the breakup of the Beatles when John Lennon came up with Imagine - Paul was like "Oh yeah, Johns come up with a classic" I wonder if Paul cried, when he played this? he wonders if John knew he was a fan of his and hopes John was a fan of Pauls as well.

Paul says he loved Little Richard and could not believe his voice,Claimed Little Richard

"I taught Paul everything he knows, wooooooooooo" Paul mimicin Lil Richard. lol The first time Paul ever heard of Elvis Presley was when he went to the "Liverpool int. for boys" on the back of mag cover (Of the enemy?) was Elvis Presley, "The kinda name you had to learn first, and usual name" says Paul. As for ME I missed the Day in a Life bit, and what paul had to say while typing, ha.

Well as a whole, well done Paul! I loved the show. I loved all the songs choices with the exception of Little Bear, Yikes! below is a list of all songs played by Macca!
