Paul McCartney called a US radio station to thank them for playing his music.

Sky Daniels, program director of listener-supported public radio station KCSN Los Angeles, received a message that McCartney wanted to speak to him on March 6.

On calling a contact at McCartney's label, he was told that McCartney had heard about KCSN's support for his 2013 album 'New' and wished to thank the programmer. As a result, the two chatted for more than an hour.

"Paul's call was so thoughtful, I found myself fighting back tears," Daniels told Billboard. "He told us of how his friends all loved the station, and [that] they told him that KCSN was playing a number of songs from 'New' and he simply wanted to say thanks."

In the call, McCartney also revealed that he was working on music for a forthcoming animated film. "It's like being a kid getting to play with some of the most creative people in the world," McCartney said.

Sir Paul McCartney collected the one-off Songwriter's Songwriter award at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas last month. Scroll down to see his acceptance speech in full.
