Jason Carty is one half of the terrific Beatles podcast, Nothing Is Real.

A winner of the coveted Beatle Brain of Ireland competition with his co-host, Steven Cockroft, Jason is also a huge Elvis Costello fan.

We discuss some of Jason’s favourite Costello songs, the many and varied EC gigs he’s attended and he recalls meeting the man himself during his Dublin days.

And, of course, we can’t talk to ‘the Paul guy’ from the leading Beatles podcast without discussing the wonderful McCartney/MacManus songs.
