Paddy McAloon Interview - September 2009

On the 3rd September 2009, Arnd Zeigler headed to County Durham to conduct an interview with Paddy McAloon - something of a follow-up to his earlier effort in 2001.  This time, the key topic was the release of 'Let's Change The World With Music,' and some questions from members of the Sproutnet message board were answered.

As before, it's a one-sided interview, so you'll need to consult the titles to know what subject is being discussed.  If you want to save the files, you can right-click on them and click 'save as.'
