pop 41. A Pure Pop Radio Exclusive! Tomorrow Night, Tuesday July 14: The World Premiere of Pop 4’s Song, “Don’t You Be Like That.” We’re honored to be able to bring to you, at 8:00 pm ET tomorrow night, an exclusive-to-Pure-Pop-Radio song from the upcoming album by Pop 4, this year’s top supergroup. Comprised of Liar’s Club’s Scott McPherson, Andrea Perry, K.C. Bowman, and Kirk Adams, the group’s debut album is fittingly called Summer; we predict this collection will be an instant favorite of pop fans around the world.

“Don’t You Be Like That” is a mid-tempo, melodic charmer with satiny lead vocals from Andrea, Kirk and Scott. The lovely melody combines with joyous harmonies and deft George Harrison-esque electric guitar for a melodic pop experience that you won’t forget. Tune in tomorrow tonight at 8:00 pm ET for the exclusive world premiere of this great song. We’re proud to be spinning it for you!

new2. New Songs and Artists Added to the Pure Pop Radio Playlist! We’ve added a bumper crop of new songs and artists to our playlist. New songs! New artists! New melodic pop sounds that will form part of the soundtrack to your summer! Click here to see today’s list of new nuggets, and don’t forget to check out another list coming this Thursday, July 16.

everylittlethinglogo-small3. Brand-New Editions of Every Little Thing and Things We Said Today. Every Little Thing airs tonight, Monday, July 13 at 9 pm ET; Things We Said Today hits the airwaves tomorrow night, Tuesday, July 14, also at 9 pm ET. Both shows air on your 24-hour-a-day home for the greatest melodic pop music in the universe, Pure Pop Radio.

On this week’s fresh-from-the-fabified-oven edition of Every Little Thing, Ken gets the proceedings rolling with a pair of Beatles classics, including “Because,” and solo tracks from Paul McCartney (a live version of “Can’t Buy Me Love”) and George Harrison (“Mystical One”). Tonight’s second segment comprises a tribute to the great bluesman, B.B. King, which includes a track recorded for the recent McCartney tribute album, The Art of McCartney. It’s a spectacular, bluesy version of McCartney II’s “On the Way.”

Tonight’s third, themed segment presents reggae and ska sounds featured in various Beatles and solo Beatles tracks. You’ll hear McCartney’s “How Many People,” John Lennon’s “Borrowed Time,” and Wings’ “C Moon,” among other songs. It’s another terrific Beatleriffic set, curated by Ken.

Every Little Thing is the premiere, syndicated program playing Beatles group and solo recordings. Hosted by longtime radio personality Ken Michaels, the show airs periodically on Monday nights at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.

the-beatles-things-we-said-todayTomorrow night’s edition of the weekly Beatles roundtable, Things We Said Today, takes a look at Paul McCartney’s recent live shows and covers an extraordinary event in the life of Rick Glover, who joins Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, Al Sussman and Allan Kozinn to talk about his appearance on stage at McCartney’s recent concert in Columbia, South Carolina.

Glover has seen McCartney so many times–135!–he should have an entry in the book of Guinness World Records. One of the self-proclaimed Fans on the Run, a group of dedicated folks who travel around the world to see McCartney and his band, Glover talks to the panel about his run of shows seen since 1976, joking that he started going “before any of you guys were alive, I guess.”

Glover’s tale is, at heart, a story of love for McCartney’s music. It’s a wonderful story, and Glover tells it well. You won’t want to miss this show.

Things We Said Today is a weekly survey of all things Beatles that is hosted by a quartet of Beatles experts–today’s Fab Four, if you will. Ken Michaels, host of Every Little Thing, is joined by Beatlefan Executive Editor Al Sussman, Steve Marinucci (Beatles Examiner), and Allan Kozinn, longtime music critic. Other well-known Beatles experts sometimes sit in with the core group. Things We Said Today airs every Tuesday night at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.
