Andy used the 'You know' phrase 8 times in his answer to 1 question.  It appears Andy is using it to accentuate a point, to trky to get his listener to understand what he is trying to convey without having to use a large number of words.
In fairness to Andy, I don't think he's alone.  If you listen to a lot of young people's conversations they're peppered with "you know", and a lot of older people (myself included) use it too, although to a much lesser extent.   It's a meaningless phrase which seems to have crept into the English language.  Interestingly, Andy's perfectly capable of excluding it when giving live TV interviews.  Maybe he just has problems with jouralists?  Think
