Music makers Tricia and Dana Countryman, and author Chuck Gunderson sit behind the microphones on this week’s Pure Pop Radio specialty shows. You’re in for a real treat.
Tonight at 8 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation, Tricia Countryman checks in with Alan Haber to talk about her just-released solo album, Sometimes When I’m Dreaming…, produced and arranged by her husband Dana, who also sits in to add his comments.
Sometimes When I’m Dreaming… is a lovely musical journey built on classic song craft and Tricia’s golden voice. During this typically in-depth episode of In Conversation, you’ll hear how the album’s 16 songs (plus one bonus track) were selected, how Dana came up with the sweetly-realized arrangements, and much more. You’ll also be treated to three songs from the album, including the beautifully sung Jimmy Webb masterpiece, “Adios.”

Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 13, at noon, 4 and 8 pm ET (three times to listen!), Lefty and Zeek Weekling, from the super fab group the Weeklings, talk to Alan on In Conversation about recording their upcoming second album in London at the famed Abbey Road Studios. And speaking of famed, Lefty, Zeek, Rocky and Smokestack Weekling recorded in Abbey Road’s Studio Two, where the Beatles made so much legendary musical magic.
You’ll hear from Lefty and Zeek about the Weeklings’ time spent recording at Abbey Road, and you’ll get some tasty information about the Weeklings’ upcoming second album, including the provisional title. As always, Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation is in the center of the action that fuels the soundtrack of your life.
This Thursday, July 14 at 8 pm ET on Things We Said Today, our regular panel of Beatles experts talks to Chuck Gunderson, author of the two-volume opus, Some Fun Tonight!: The Backstage Story of How the Beatles Rocked America: The Historic Tours of 1964-1966, which will be available in paperback on September 6. The topic: the 1966 tour that the Beatles undertook. And the recent passing of the legendary Scotty Moore, who created the guitar sound on Elvis Presley’s early records, will be discussed.
That’s the next couple of days on Pure Pop Radio: two brand-new editions of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation, and an all-new Things We Said Today. Pretty good for a mid-July week, we say.
