Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation is back tomorrow night, Tuesday, September 15, at 7 pm ET (4 pm PT) with the first part of another, all-new conversation with one of melodic pop music’s top talents. Jayson Jarmon from Vanilla sits behind the microphones to talk with Alan Haber about his musical history and the band’s sparkling new album, 2.0. It’s the second two-part program in a row, following last week’s talks with the members of Pop 4.
In part one, Jayson goes behind-the-scenes for a detailed tour through his musical life that includes an ongoing membership in Liar’s Club and his current project, Vanilla. You’ll hear three songs from 2.0, including a straight-ahead pop number, what sounds like a centuries-old traditional, and one of our favorite songs of this year, “Monkeypox!,” which deals with…well, you know. (In case you were wondering, and we know that you were, Alan discusses Jayson’s fixation with monkeys, which also make an appearance in 2.0’s “South Tacoma Way.”)
Part two follows this Wednesday night, September 16, at a special time: 9 pm ET (6 pm PT). This short program packs a big punch: You’ll hear world premiere acoustic performances of two new Vanilla songs that may or may not appear on the next album by the group: “On a Night Like This,” a drinking song; and “The Big 5,” about what are referred to as the “big five” accounting firms. Both are superb; you won’t want to miss them. They’ve been performed and recorded exclusively by Jayson for Pure Pop Radio.
We say this all of the time, but it’s especially true now: You won’t want to miss these shows. Musicians and fans alike will thrill to the conversation and world premieres of two new Vanilla songs that you will not hear anywhere else.
To recap: Tune in tomorrow night, September 15 at 7 pm ET (4 pm PT) for part one of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation’s two-part talk with Vanilla’s Jayson Jarmon. Tune in Wednesday night at a special time: 9 pm ET (6 pm PT) to hear two new Vanilla songs that don’t appear on 2.0. It just doesn’t get more exciting than this!
