Kate Waynebroke: Is it not?

Rob Stitch: Its almost like now you know so many years after Beatles stopped that everyone's having a bit more fun with it. Paul McCartney seems more relaxed about everything.
Kate Waynebroke: Partying.
Rob Stitch: There's fantastic footage of when they came to Australia in 1963 and I don't know that it's played much anywhere else in the world, someone owns it you know in the old days someone owns everything, and they, and it was incredible because the mucking around they were doing on aeroplanes and things.
Kate Waynebroke: But you were obviously having a lend with that (Referring to the video for "I Don't Wanna Know")
Kate Waynebroke: Yeah, and what's the reaction been to that?

Santo: Because I saw, it says cause, you donated some money to telethon.
Host: No, No, not just some money Santo.
Santo: A bunch of money.
Host: No, a $100,000 dollars.
Santo: Yeah, well I know. I don't know, I feel like there are accountants around. It's actually called Telethon isn't it. Is it, was it for a children's hospital or something?
Santo: And does this feel a little like a Telethon (Referring to the show) because that's our directive.
Kate Waynebroke: Yeah for donations.
Santo: Yes well Julian I can't tell you. If you do, have you done Telethon's around the world?
Santo: If you ever get to the United States, Please Please Please go on the Habra Telethon, this is, I can't believe I've actually got a chance to show this.
Host: We've got footage.
Santo: Yes I've got footage this is the Habra. This is Jewish Ahh running a Telethon.
(Cut to some hilarious footage of a Jewish Telethon where rabbis are getting excited at a new tally board clicking over with donations)
Santo: And then they go crazy and just start dancing.
(Cut to some hilarious footage of Rabbis dancing madly)
Santo: But Julian the good thing is that they have acts on. If you can also perform.
(Cuts to some really hilarious footage of Jewish men playing guitars, and then a really crazed Jewish man madly playing the drums)
Kate Waynebroke: Ahh I've got to ring that number.
Santo: I've got to tell you okay I think we have seen enough of that.
(Return to the studio where everyone is laughing)
Rob Stitch: You see you could do that.
Santo: But Julian there was this great moment there were they gave a new liver to a young girl who came over from Israel or something and the guy goes "And now she is going to live a fruitful life she's joining the army."
(Crowd and Interviewer's laugh, Julian looks perplexed)
Rob Stitch: Yes that footage was sent by a Jewish friend of ours.
Santo: It was, it was exactly how the US sent that across.
Rob Stitch: Can I tell you a small piece of trivia history about the Telethon in Perth? You might even know it. (Looking at Julian) Robert Holmes A Court bought the, bought a company, an English company, which actually owned the entire Beatles catalogue. Back catalogue. And Michael Jackson err wanted to buy and still owns most of the catalogue and one of the conditions was that he come to Australia to be on that Telethon. And suddenly, we didn't know this, and suddenly Michael Jackson turned up. Yep and he then, he gave his daughter one song and that's how, that's how
Rob Stitch:: And Holmes A Court gave, who gave his daughter one song?
Santo: I can't believe that. I wonder if that's why Julian has come to get that song back or something.
Kate Waynebroke: Hey ahh, Are you religious?
Kate Waynebroke: Cause I was listening, and, is that a Rune round your neck (referring to the jewelry Julian is wearing an esoteric necklace)
Kate Waynebroke: It's a Rune. What is the Rune sign?
Kate Waynebroke: But do you change it, you know for shows like tonight?
Kate Waynebroke: Long temper, even temper.
Host: Well Julian you've got a few more shows to go around the country.
