Paul McCartney Front Page FeatureA massive Paul McCartney fan from Cornwall is celebrating, after Pirate FM gave him the chance to watch their idol on the other side of the world.

Paul Floyd from Callington will be winging his way to a Stadium in Japan, after clinching the ultimate prize in the competition.

The Cornish radio station recently gave it's listeners the opportunity to watch the Beatles legend, at a huge gig in Tokyo later this month.

Avid listeners were told to listen out for two songs in a row by the artist, and to ring-in to get in the drawer when they did.

'Live and Let Die' and 'Jet' by Paul McCartney were played just after 8am on Friday 8th November, resulting in a switchboard meltdown with thousands of listeners trying to claim their place in the draw.

Paul couldn't stop laughing, and dropped his phone in the excitement! He kept saying, "Ideal, thank you very much! "

"I couldn't believe it when he said my name. I have been an huge fan of Paul McCartney, and I can't wait to see him!"

He added: "I'll be taking my wife Mandy, who's made up about it!"

Neil Caddy, Pirate FM's Breakfast Presenter said: "We're really pleased that we've been able to make Paul's dream come true. It truly is a unique prize, and we hope he and wife, Mandy have a fantastic time.

"Over the last few months we've brought Travis to Cornwall, we've sent Kate Williams from St Austell to see Elton John in Las Vegas, and even gave Beccy Tilley from Pendeen the opportunity to see Jessie J at an exclusive gig in London."

"Plus we've also given away £5,000 on the Secret Sound, and a total of £3,000 with our recent Music Bingo competition."

"And, this is not the end: we've got loads more great opportunities to win coming up over the next few months, so watch this space!"
