You’d better wax your surfboard in anticipation of tonight’s hour in the surf and sun with Jammin’ James Riley’s Catching a Wave. Jammin’ James talks to legendary Los Straitjackets guitarist Eddie Angel, and spins sumptuous sides from Dick Dale, The Martin Denny Orchestra, The Neanderthals, The Chantays, Glen Campbell, and many more of your favorites. Tune in at 8 pm ET. Surf’s up!
This Wednesday afternoon, October 12 at 1 pm ET, Pop 4 and Tiny Volcano’s master of melody Scott McPherson brings you another pop-filled episode of The Weird and the Wonderful. Scott gets nostalgic from the sounds of not-too-long-ago as he plays songs from Colorworks, The Corner Laughers, Sondre Lerche, and The Blood Sugars. Plus, you’ll find out how to sing like the great Doobie Brother Michael McDonald, baby!
Wrapping up this week’s slate of specialty shows on Pure Pop Radio, Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, Al Sussman, and Allan Kozinn look back on some of their favorite moments from past Things We Said Today shows. Celebrating 200 information-filled roundtables, Allan remembers the panel’s conversation with Wings guitarist Laurence Juber; Steve remembers a conversation with Paul McCartney guitar player Rusty Anderson; Ken revisits Allan’s look at the progression of “Strawberry Fields Forever” from a show that concerned itself with The Beatles’ greatest studio miracles, and Al fondly talks about Beatlefan senior editor Rick Glover, whose Fans on the Run designation refers to the many, many Paul McCartney shows he has been to. It’s a show you won’t want to miss.
That’s this week’s specialty show rundown. Keep listening to Pure Pop Radio, all day and all of the night. We play the best melodic pop in the universe!
