New Music Day at Pure Pop Radio: It’s a Beatles and Beach Boys Spectacular!

purepoplogoToday, we’ve got a very special group of adds to our playlist from Paul McCartney and the Beach Boys, plus Brian Wilson and Dennis Wilson. Since Pure Pop Radio started broadcasting in October 2012, we’ve been slotting in one song every hour from the Beach Boys, and the Beatles and solo Beatles eras.

Hang on to your Rickenbackers and surfboards, ’cause we’ve fattened up the pot for a total of 290 tracks by the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson and Dennis Wilson, and 424 by the Beatles in their group and solo years, including original songs and covers from some of your favorite artists.

Not only that, but we’ve added 16 songs from the awesome soundtrack of the 1970s film, All This and World War II. Let’s run them down, shall we?
