This week’s all-new edition of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation features Brett Harris, whose new album, Up in the Air, is a fantastic collection of wonderfully realized pop songs. We’ve been playing Brett on Pure Pop Radio for awhile; we’re happy to have him in the interviewee’s seat. Of course, in addition to hearing all about this terrific artist and his new album, you’ll hear three songs that will direct you to purchase Up in the Air when it releases on March 4. (Airs 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) this Tuesday, February 23)
Tonight at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), we present to you another rousing edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. On the docket: the usual, inviting varied opening set, with songs from Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison; a track from McCartney’s ballet, Ocean’s Kingdom; and a tribute to Buddy Holly, featuring interpretations of Holly’s songs from the Beatles and the Crickets, among others. (Airs 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) tonight, Monday, February 22)
This week’s collective spin on Brian Bringelson’s Needle Meets Vinyl includes music from classic artists such as the Beatles, the Smiths, Barbara Lynn, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, Sam Cooke, and James and Bobby Purify. As usual, it’s all played from vinyl. A treat for the ears! (Airs 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) this Wednesday, February 24)
On Things We Said Today, our Beatles experts consider the legacy of the group and how it will be handled in the future. What will be released as far as new audio and video are concerned?
