A typically enjoyable opening segment, a look at a song that influenced the Beatles, and a salute to Motown great Smokey Robinson anchor tonight’s edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. The fun begins at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.
Ken gets things rolling with his opening set of songs from both the Beatles and solo Beatles catalogs. First up: a live version of George Harrison’s “I Want to Tell You.” Next: Paul McCartney’s classic from Tug of War, “Take It Away.” Also spinning: John Lennon’s “Steel and Glass,” the Beatles’ “Lady Madonna,” and Ringo Starr’s “Gave It All Up.” Very cool.
Tonight’s second segment looks at a song that influenced the Beatles. In the spotlight: Fleetwood Mac’s “Albatross,” which influenced the sound of the Fabs’ Abbey Road favorite, “Sun King.” For those listeners who like to know where things come from, this segment will be an eye-opener and a favorite.
In segment number three, Ken presents a salute to Smokey Robinson. From George Harrison’s “Ooh Baby (You Know that I Love You)” to his “Pure Smokey,” this is a loving set that is bursting with heart. You won’t want to miss it.
It’s all for you tonight on Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. Tune in to Pure Pop Radio at 9 pm ET so you don’t miss a note. Enjoy!
