Dance, Tony, Dance!

With George in the USA, Ringo moving into a new home, and John by Yoko's side in hospital, it fell to Paul McCartney to promote The Beatles (aka the "White Album") on Radio Luxembourg.

To this end, DJ Tony Macarthur recorded a track-by-track examination of the double album at Paul's London home on November 20th, 1968. Except that Paul only felt comfortable talking about his own compositions, although he does touch on "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" and a few other songs.

Here is a composite, mostly from a so-so off-air recording (it aired November 21st) but with a couple of excerpts from a very good quality source tape spliced in. Who out there has the complete upgrade?
