Another week chock full of top-flight specialty programming is in store for listeners this week on Pure Pop Radio.
Kicking off the festivities tonight at 8 pm ET is an all-new edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. The usual varied opening set, this time featuring classic songs from Wings, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, is followed by an interview with Elephants Memory’s Gary Van Scyoc, during which Ken plays a double shot of Memory tunes. The third, thematic set features songs with the words yesterday, today and tomorrow in the titles, plus an interview with the late Sir George Martin. It’s another outstanding show, number 83 in the series.
Musician Brian Bringelson, who records under the name Paul Starling and is a member of the band Anchor and Bear (a new album is coming soon), spins 16 songs from vinyl records on the latest Needle Meets Vinyl program, airing this Wednesday, August 10 at 8 pm ET. On the docket: The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Sam Cooke, Harry Nilsson, the Electric Flag, the Zombies, and a triple play from Neil Young. Another sterling lineup, and another sterling, all-vinyl show.
It’s two for Thursday this week when a double shot of first-time Pure Pop Radio airings of the latest Things We Said Today programs comes to you on August 11. The first one kicks off at 8 pm ET with author Kit O’Toole sitting in the virtual guest chair. The longtime music writer, who is also a contributing editor at Beatlefan magazine, sits in with Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci and Al Sussman (Allan Kozinn is absent from this episode). But Allan is back in the Things fold in the second half of this week’s twofer, which begins at 9:10 pm ET (yes, the one after 9:09!). Beatlefan writer Tom Frangione joins in on the discussion with the most knowledgeable Beatle experts around.
