On tap: the usual, wonderful, varied opening set with guest star Gary U.S. Bonds, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and John Lennon; an interview with famed Beatles author Mark Lewisohn; and a fun, themed set featuring songs from the Beatles and solo Beatles that start with the letter “A.”

Every Little Thing is the premiere, syndicated program playing Beatles group and solo recordings. Hosted by longtime radio personality Ken Michaels, the show airs a mix of new and archived shows on Monday nights at 8 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.

terry kirkmanTomorrow night, March 8, at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), we deliver an encore airing of a very special episode of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation. From October 2013 comes a marathon, in-depth, two-hour visit with the Association’s Terry Kirkman, who takes listeners through his career from his childhood to playing music in the 1960s to the Association and beyond. Along the way, you’ll hear a wonderful selection of Association classics. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to once again hear from one of the greatest writers and performers of the rock era.

Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation, the premiere melodic pop interview program hosted by Alan Haber, airs Tuesday nights at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) and repeats on Sunday afternoons at 5 pm ET (2 pm PT).

needle meets vinylOn a brand-new edition of Needle Meets Vinyl, airing this Wednesday night, March 9 at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), musician Brian Bringelson brings you a wide variety of melodies played by a host of familiar names from Christine McVee,  Dennis Wilson and  Lindsey Buckingham to  John Phillips, Mike Nesmith and Carl Wilson…and a bunch of favorite solo Beatles. And, as always, it’s all spun from vinyl.

Needle Meets Vinyl is the weekly show during which all songs are played from vinyl records. The music spans the decades during which popular music has flourished. Curated and presented by Brian Bringelson, a member of the band Anchor and Bear and a solo artist under the name Paul Starling, the show airs every Wednesday night at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT). An encore performance runs on Sunday afternoons at 1 pm ET (10 am PT).

Tthe-beatles-things-we-said-todayhis week’s edition of the Beatles roundtable, Things We Said Today, airing on Thursday night, March 10 at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), features a discussion concerning artists, living or dead, that the panel would like to see the solo Beatles work with. You may be surprised at the names that are suggested. Bono? Bruce Springsteen? Elton John? Chet Atkins? Tune in to hear about these great muscians and more.

Things We Said Today is a weekly survey of all things Beatles that’s 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 Thursday nights at 8 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.

Make it a four-night date: This Monday through Thursday at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT). Our regular, weekly specialty shows sizzle with melodic pop goodness.
