We’re Goin’ Fishin’ Starting Next Week

bye-for-nowWe’re going to be taking a hiatus from all things Pure Pop Radio beginning next week. The kickoff of our New Songs for Your Late Summer Vacay event is being postponed to a range of dates to be, as they say, determined at a later date.

Pure Pop Radio will continue to spin the greatest melodic pop music in the world during our hiatus, so have no fear: a couple of mouse clicks will still bring you the sounds that make your ears, and your heart, take notice (your handy listening links can be found below). And remember: You now can listen on the go with our new mobile apps for Android and iOS devices (Click here for all of the information you need to know).

See you back here in a while and before you know it, even. Be good to yourselves, hear?

Groove to the New Tunes on the Pure Pop Radio Playlist While Doing the Late Summer Vacay Thing at the Seaside or Anywhere!

Take a late summer vacay! Get away!

Take a late summer vacay! Get away!

Whether you’re spending your late summer vacay flexing your water sports muscles (see right), relaxing at the seaside or you’re all set up with a chaise lounge and a refreshing, ice-cold beverage in the backyard, the hundreds of new songs being added to the Pure Pop Radio playlist from August 18 through August 31 will provide your groovy melodic pop soundtrack.

And remember that you can listen at home, or on the go with our new mobile apps for Android and iOS devices (click here to find out more and download).

We’ve carefully curated a group of the finest, catchiest pop songs to add to the playlist. Your favorite artists. Your new favorite artists. Songs that speak to you. Songs that sing to you. Songs that make you tap your feet. Songs that bring out the award-winning air guitarist in you. Songs that will become some of your new best friends.

We’ve whipped up a fun Facebook event page to help celebrate our end-of-summer, adds-to-the-playlist campaign. Would you please visit this event page and join your friends in support of our efforts? We’d sure appreciate it! Click here to be magically transported.

So, what are you doing to while away the hours during the late summer days and nights? We’ll be adding hundreds of songs to the playlist, of course, but we can’t say that hanging out on a comfy blanket on the sand by the seaside doesn’t sound appealing, too. It’s hard to put into words, especially when Queen have already done it in such an appealing, poppy way. Press play below and sing along if you know the words! And we’ll see you on August 18!

In fact, it doesn’t matter where you’re listening–it only matters that you listen to tonight’s 28th edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing, during which there will be the usual mix of fab and gear sounds that make your Monday nights bright!

What’s on tap tonight? Ken kicks off the show with five Beatles and solo Beatles tracks, including George Harrison’s “Love You To,” as waxed by the Fabs themselves.

Don’t miss the latest hour-long Beatles missive from Ken Michaels. 9 pm tonight on Pure Pop Radio, your original 24-hour home of the melodic pop hits.

The Solicitors Plot World Domination! New Album, Blank Check, is Coming At You in October!

the solicitors - blank check coverWe’ve been in love with the catchy pop of Australia’s The Solicitors since we first heard their delectable, Stiff-inspired tunes late last year. With enough tracks written and committed to wax, and after humming Lee Jones’s top-flight melodious melodies to ourselves, it’s nearly time to greet the group’s first album, Blank Check, set to hit Oz and beyond in October. It’s already Pure Pop Radio approved, and we simply can’t wait.

Australia's The Solicitors

Australia’s The Solicitors

Actually, we don’t have to, because we’ve heard the whole thing and it’s as spectacular as anyone could have hoped. Song after song, melody after melody, Jones delivers the goods with remarkably concise, catchy nuggets that cause the heavens to open up and sing along. The Solicitors’ first single from Blank Check is the crazy good, intoxicating basher “If You Let Me Hold You” that will hopefully take over radio and stereo systems all around the world. Kicking off with an insistent bass guitar thump underpinned by a solid drum beat, the song gets into gear with one of the top hooks you’re liable to hear in the coming months. The verses are as catchy as the choruses, which build on the verses by setting the melody free with delicious harmony vocals. And watch out for one of the best middle-eights like ever.

You can watch Lee, his Energizer bunny-like guitarist Laf Zee and the rest of the band deliver the goods in the video for “If You Let Me Hold You,” handily presented to you right here:

Pretty great, huh? Well, there’s even more great abounding: Pure Pop Radio is proud to be able to bring you an exclusive track from Blank Check, “My Secret is Safe with Me,” a typically energetic Solicitors number with another catchy chorus that will roll around in your head for ages. Listen to it here by clicking on the play button coming right up, courtesy of the great Scott Thurling at the Solicitors’ record label, Popboomerang Records. (You can also hear the song playing in rotation on the air.) Here comes “My Secret is Safe with Me”!

If your desire is to know everything there is to discover about the Solicitors and Lee Jones, click here to listen to Lee’s appearance on our signature interview program, Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation, from earlier this year. It’s a great talk that you won’t soon forget.

So. Mark your calendars. October 2014. The release of the Solicitors’ smashing new album, Blank Check. Listen now to Pure Pop Radio for “My Secret is Safe with Me” (exclusive to us), “If You Let Me Hold You,” “Pretty Penny,” “Quicksand,” and “Help Me Forget.” We’re going Solicitors crazy! And you will too!

Take a Trip Back to 1968 on Tonight’s Far-Out Edition of Every Little Thing

Ken Michaels' Every Little Thing...For the Beatles Fan Who Craves All Things Fab! Airs Every Monday at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio!

Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing…For the Beatles Fan Who Craves All Things Fab! Airs Every Monday at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio!

It’s back to the groovy, wavy-gravy, fab and gear late-sixties–specifically the year 1968–on tonight’s time travel-esque episode of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing, airing at 9 pm ET.

Ken hits the Fab Four spot right out of the box with six group and solo tunes, beginning with an early take of George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord” and ending with “Young Boy,” a song that Paul McCartney wrote while waiting for Linda to finish whipping up lunch for a feature for the New York Times. Segment two presents a love songs two-fer and a politically-charged tune from John Lennon, “Bring on the Lucie (Freeda People).”

Have a seat in your very own Fab Four Wayback Machine as Ken spins, in his third, thematic segment, five songs from 1968, including Mary Hopkin’s “Those Were the Days,” produced by Paul McCartney; and the Fabs “Happiness is a Warm Gun.” Nice! 1968

Don’t forget to stay tuned for Ken’s weekly Beatles trivia question–and the answer! Put on your groovy thinking cap and see how much you know about your favored Fabs! Set your alarm clocks for 9 pm ET tonight. This is gonna be a good one!
