Here's Gay Byrne interviewing Kate Bush in 1978

The singer had just released Wuthering Heights, at the tender age of 19.

AHEAD OF THE undoubtedly manic scramble for tickets for Kate Bush’s string of London concerts, which go on sale on Friday, we’ve dug up this little gem from the archives.

The singer appeared on the Late Late Show in 1978 to chat to a very fatherly Gay Byrne, fresh from the success of her first single Wuthering Heights. Have a look.
