Alan Haber's Pure Pop Radio is the archive for the premiere website that covered the melodic pop scene with in-depth reviews of new and reissued recordings, and a wide variety of features. We are now closed for new activity.

Mark Your Calendars: Our First Annual Favorite Records of the Year List, Stars of ’14, and Our Annual Holiday Popapalooza Will Be Here Before You Know It! Celebrate With Us!

We’re having a banner year here at Pure Pop Radio, with the station entertaining people all around the world 24 hours a day with the greatest melodic pop music around, and this very website, which is growing by leaps and bounds with each passing day. We’ve run several, big events this year, during which we’ve added many hundreds of new tracks to our playlist. And we’ve been planning, behind the scenes, to end the year with an enormous, melodious, power poppin’ bang.

The melodic pop stars shine in our first annual Favorite Records of the Year list…Stars of ’14!

Our First Annual Favorite Records of the Year List: Stars of ’14! Set Your Alarm Clocks for Tuesday, November 18!

On October 24, 1963, the Beatles performed an exciting set of seven songs for the Swedish radio program, Pop ’63. The original, ahem, rare CD of that performance was called Stars of ’63. In the spirit of that great radio event, we’re putting on an exciting show of our own: our first ever list of favorite records of the year that we’re calling Stars of ’14 (yes, we used to roll out best-of lists back on the old, weekly Pure Pop Radio shows, but this is the first time we’re doing a list here on the Pure Pop Radio website).

Under the banner of Stars of ’14, we’ll be presenting you with a detailed list of 20 of our favorite records of this year (not a best-of!) and an addendum featuring some of our favorite, random pop moments. Look for Stars of ’14 on Tuesday, November 18. We hope that, as a result of reading our list, you are moved to discover artists and/or albums you may have missed during this year, a year that has produced an even better-than-usual crop of releases. Print out our list and visit your local brick-and-mortar music stores, or your favorite online shops (like the ones on the artists’ websites), to stock up on holiday gifts for yourself and others. Hey, Thanksgiving is a little less than a month away, and pretty soon after that the holiday bells will be ringing!

We’re making beautiful music beginning December 24 with our annual Christmas Popapalooza!

Pure Pop Radio’s Second Annual Holiday Popapalooza!

sleigh-bellsSpeaking of holiday bells… If you were with us last year, you treasured Pure Pop Radio’s 24-hour marathon of melodic pop Christmas songs that began on Christmas Eve and continued through the whole of Christmas Day. This year, we’re serving up another 24 hours of holiday pop music, beginning at 12 noon on December 24 and continuing through 11:59 pm (plus or minus a minute or two!) on Christmas day. That’s actually 30 straight hours of the sweet sounds of the season you know and love! We’ll have all of your old favorites and a few-plus of tunes that will hopefully become your new favorites. It’s all for you on the original 24-hour-a-day online melodic pop radio station, Pure Pop Radio.

Look forward to our second annual Holiday Popapalooza on December 24 and 25, and our first annual list of favorite records of the year, Stars of ’14, on Tuesday November 18! And thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for stopping in here at our website and enjoying the year-round sounds of Pure Pop Radio!
