richard x heyman yeh man 2016Richard X. Heyman joins Alan Haber on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation to talk about his re-realization of his classic Hey Man! album, released in 1991 and celebrating its 25th anniversary. The new versions of these great songs exhibit deeper bass and a wider stereo sound field. Many of the instrumental parts are new. It’s a fantastic listening experience (we’re playing all of the new versions of these songs in rotation on Pure Pop Radio).

This Wednesday night, Brian Bringelson checks in with an all-new episode of Needle Meets Vinyl, where all of the music is played from records. This week, Brian spins classic tracks from the Box Tops, Linda Ronstadt, the Move, Big Star, the James Gang, Father John Misty and, yes, the Beatles. The Fabs’ “Savoy Truffle” gets things going this Wednesday night, April 27, at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT).

the-beatles-things-we-said-todayThis Thursday night, April 28, at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), the usual gang of Beatles experts gathers around the microphones for an all-new edition of the weekly Fab roundtable, Things We Said Today. Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, Al Sussman and Allan Kozinn talk about Paul McCartney’s current tour; Steve gives his man-on-the-spot report concerning the first show on April 13 at Fresno, California’s Save Mart Center. The crowd was “going crazy,” Steve reports (no surprise there!). The panel also talks about rumors that McCartney will be featured at the upcoming Coachella Festival along with the Who and other classic artists, takes a look at the imminent appearance on streaming media sites of the Traveling Wilburys’ catalog, and looks back on the recently-held Fest for Beatles Fans. It’s another must-listen-to show.

Plan to listen to all of our specialty shows this week–you won’t want to miss a minute!
