In this one I speak with Jim Workman, an old Dunbar friend, about the current Paul McCartney tour. Jim saw the controversial Winston-Salem show on May 21, and I’ll be attending the Syracuse show on Saturday. He shares his review, some thoughts on the people who couldn’t get into the venue, and the surprising songs Paul didn’t play. And we finally discuss a traumatic moment from my past, which Jim witnessed in real-time. I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

An email Jim received during the days before the W-S McCartney show. Get it together, people!
Saw Paul in Charlottesville VA in 2015, and there were similar after show complaints there as well. And like Jim, I had no problems. The preferred parking is well worth the money. We parked within 100 yards of the front door and after the show we were out of the lot by the time most people got to their cars.
A fantastic show as well.
Enjoyed the chat, and this post! Keep up the great work!
