Sir Ian McKellen, Sylvester McCoy and Jonathan Hyde rock up at RadioLIVE

I have uploaded this 2007 audio from an early morning visit to the studio by Sir Ian McKellen, Sylvester McCoy and Jonathan Hyde, truly the A Team of acting. They were in NZ with the Royal Shakespeare Co, performing King Lear and The Seagull. I took them on some sight seeing around Auckland and after the final show took them to a bar called Shanghai Lils. When I said I had to go to my talkback radio show Ian enquired if they were coming also, and so they did. The callers to the show didn't really know who the guests were and my co-host Joe, wasn't making a big deal of it. Highlights include Sylvester playing the spoons while a regular caller, 75yr old "Leggy Peggy" plays a knees up medley on piano. It's 20mins long but has some great moments! Thanks to the producer Jason Beaumont for having the sense to record it.
