MK looks and faces while playing the scalextric is so fun!

Yeah, loved that.  He was clearly enjoying himself there.

Some of you may not be aware that Kenny is not a journalist by any means, but a former racer and winner of the Indy 500!

He is a disarming guy.

That’s cool! Another reason why MK was so open with him.

Yes, I think so. Mark must have been familiar with Kenny as this was not long after his career ended. This was part of a brief run of interviews. Kenny also got to interview David Letterman, which was almost unheard of at the time (Dave being notorious for only appearing on his own show).

Yeah, one of the best MK interviews. It's in this one where he confesses he did the OES tour only to escape his failing marriage, I'd forgotten where I got that info from

Dave was/is a big motor racing fan, he used to have a lot of racing drivers on his show.

I went to a taping of Letterman 10 years ago, a real thrill.

Cool!

Kenny in fact used to race for Dave, hence the connection.

Doesn't sound like a MK song at all for me, and won't make sense anyway to put an unreleased MK song in an external interview...
You might get lucky, now and then

It's probably the background music to the Henrik Hansen film  ;D
