Whimsical Ray Paul Guests on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation

ray paul promo shotThe first in a series of new Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation episodes rolls this coming Monday, April 11, at a special time: 9 pm ET (6 pm PT). And the message is clear: Ray Paul, record maker, is back.

Sixteen years after releasing his ace compilation CD, The Charles Beat, and 36 years after the album Go Time, from Ray Paul and RPM, made its way into the world, one of pop music’s biggest supporters is once again a recording artist: Ray Paul’s smashing album of new material, Whimsicality, is set to release on July 8 on the reactivated Permanent Press label.

But that’s not all…As of today, Pure Pop Radio is exclusively playing all 10 tracks from Whimsicality in rotation. We couldn’t be more excited.

During this show, Ray goes in-depth as he guides listeners through Whimsicality’s mix of originals and choice covers, such as the Grass Roots’ “Temptation Eyes.” He talks about the many well-known guests playing on the album, familiar names all–Emitt Rhodes, Klaatu’s Terry Draper, Walter Clevenger, the Grip Weeds’ Kurt Reil, and the Doughboys’ Gar Francis among them. Plus, you’ll hear three songs from the album.

Don’t miss a fun hour with a man who has worn many hats in the world of pop music: label owner, promoter of artists to radio, and now, once again, artist in his own right. It’s Ray Paul on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation this coming Monday at a special time: 9 pm ET (6 pm PT). A Whimsical time is guaranteed for all!

  1. Alan, I wanted to share my year end list with you. You were a big help.I’m no writer. Just a music fan.

    1. Thanks for sharing your list, Gene. And thanks for mentioning me along the way. I love turning people on to great pop music. And you’ve done the same for me–you’ve talked about some names I’m not familiar with, whom I’ll be investigating. And definitely get Dori Freeman’s record. I think you’ll love it. Thanks, Gene.
