2Legs: A Paul McCartney Podcast

A podcast dedicated to the solo career of Paul McCartney. Hosted by Tom Hunyady and Andy Nicholes.

Episode 132: The Word

June 19th, 2021

Game Time!

This week Tom and Andy jumping on an idea hatched by the Kiss Podcast folks "Three Sides of the Coin" come up with 1 word/phrase to describe each solo McCartney/Wings record.  We discuss the main canon (the same as our Ranking series).  

The Word can be thoughts on the concept/feel of the record, our personal opinion/memory of it.  Just a little fun exercise we had fun with.  We agreed on several words too! (Shocker)

Episode 131: “Women and Wives”

June 12th, 2021

Episode 131 tackles a subject we have yet to take an in depth look at previously on 2Legs. Paul's relationships. Our first show outside of his musical career!

Joining Tom and Andy this week on 2Legs is Ms. Natalia Cardenas who is the host of the Podcast "She Loves You" which focuses on the women in Beatles history. Natalia's show is a breath of fresh air to the Beatles Podcast community and her subject area is one that has been overlooked. Natalia also manages a Cynthia Lennon Instagram fan page: "Cynthia Lennon Daily".

This is the first of at least a two part series. We discussed Paul's early Liverpool relationships proceeding up to and including the Jane Asher period. Our next installment will resume once Paul and Jane call it quits in 1968 prior to Linda's arrival in London during the White Album sessions.

Ranking The Tracks Volume 6! (Venus and Mars, 1975)

June 5th, 2021

Volume 6 of our "Ranking The Tracks" series from our YouTube channel where we rank the songs on Wings' 1975 hit album Venus and Mars.  Originally streamed December 23rd, 2020. 

Anything But The Beatles: Episode 2: “Time” ELO (1981)

May 31st, 2021

Hi Hi Hi 2Legs Audio Faithful!

This is a special off-shoot mini series that Andy has done with fellow Beatles Podcaster Ethan Alexanian (Fans On The Run Podcast) where we have a monthly chat on anything but Beatles music.  We dropped our first episode last month on Ethan's page and this month we are returning the favor here on the 2Legs channel.  We also have a YouTube channel as well.  Thanks for checking "Anything But The Beatles" out!  Andy

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

And we are back!

We barely got it done for May but here we are!

This month this duo spends time geeking out on ELO. We talk ELO fandom in general, our favourite songs and concerts. We both saw the 2019 Tour and Andy attended the Radio City Music Hall show in September 2016.

We chose "Time" because we felt it is one of the overlooked ELO albums. The album was released in 1981 and certainly after the peak ELO's late 70s success but it still sold fairly well (#1 UK #9 US) and spawned two hit singles with 'Hold On Tight' and 'Twilight'.

We review the album track by track as Ethan shows off a recently scored UK pressing and Andy refers to the 2001 CD reissue for liner notes by Jeff. A time travel concept album for 1981?

What say you?

Yours Truly, 2095.

Episode 130: Last Great/Last Good/First Bad

May 29th, 2021

UCR (Ultimate Classic Rock) recently published an article on Paul's Last Great, Last Good, and First Bad album.

Your old friends at 2Legs Tom and Andy took their turn at this fun discussion.  What was Tom's first bad? Was it "Off The Ground"? What was Andy's? 

What say you?

Episode 129: Timmy Sean

May 22nd, 2021

The Ram 50th Anniversary Buzz continues this week on 2Legs!  

Tom and Andy welcome Musician Timmy Sean to the show this week.  Timmy is one of the many musicians that were a part of the "Ram On" 50th Anniversary tribute album and sings killer lead vocals on 'Smile Away' and 'Monkberry Moon Delight'.  

Timmy gives us his background in music and early days of Beatles/McCartney fandom. He also explains the process of how the tribute album came up working with Fernando Perdomo and Denny Seiwell remotely to create these excellent cover versions!

Timmy also recently released a "Powerpop Rock Opera" solo album titled "A Tale From The Other Side" (which just has the coolest 80s retro packaging to it!) which we both highly recommend!

Episode 128: “McGear”

May 15th, 2021

Tom and Andy are back after a few weeks off and our topic today is not a Paul McCartney record! 

Paul's brother Mike McCartney who later changed his surname to McGear was is also musician and enjoyed some local UK minor success with his group The Scaffold in the 60s.

In the mid 1974 he finally released his own solo album, simply titled "McGear" and the record was made with the help of our kid and Wings! It is really a fascinating listen and in the opinion of many fans and reviewers it's considered the "lost" Wings album of 1974.

Joining Tom & Andy for Episode 128 is Tony Traguardo (Fab4Free4All Podcast) who previously spoke to us regarding the McCartney/Costello partnership last year.  Tony had a chance to interview Mike in the 1980s and was a big fan of the record going back to the 1970s.  

Like McGear? Never heard it?  Let us know!

Ranking The Tracks Volume 5! (Band On The Run, 1973)

May 1st, 2021

The 5th installment of the "Ranking the Tracks" series where Tom and Andy rank their favorites on Band On The Run.  Originally streamed on YouTube 12/16/20.  

Episode 127: Oobu Joobu

April 24th, 2021

In the summer of 1995 Paul hosted his own radio show titled "Oobu Joobu"which was syndicated across the USA.  The show was a mixed bag of influential music from his & the Beatles past, reggae music, interview clips, a section on Linda's cooking the aptly titled "Cook of the House".  Most importantly it contained the first commercial airing of many McCartney demos/outtakes and soundchecks.

This week on 2Legs Tom and Andy are joined by their in-house artist Ethan Alexanian as they discuss their favorite portions of the show as they re-cap the 15 episodes. They also discuss the frankenstein aspect of how the series is represented on the Flaming Pie singles from 1997. 

Ethan and Andy also discuss the start of their new show "Anything But The Beatles".

Did you listen to the show originally in 1995?  Was it as good as you remembered? Worth a revisit? or nah?  Tell us below!
