Word In Your Ear evenings are put together by Word Magazine veterans David Hepworth and Alex Gold, and seek to provide something over and above the usual night of live music in a pub. Since July 2012 we’ve done a number of these shows involving the likes of Danny Baker, Tracey Thorn, Chris Difford and new people like The Soho Hobo. Discount tickets are usually available through this site, but if you can’t make it in person, you can hear the events as podcasts, right here.
WIYE McCartney Special. Paul Du Noyer, who’s interviewed him more than anyone (much of which is reflected in his new book, “Conversations With McCartney), and Laura Barton, who named her cat after him, discuss a national institution with Mark Ellen and David Hepworth. Best look, best song, best story, it’s all here, including the answer to the perennial question – what was Paul McCartney’s best song for The Beatles?
