By Alan Haber – Pure Pop Radio
Singer-songwriter and world traveler Coke Belda returned to Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation on August 23 in a different role–that of classic melodic pop interpreter, helping to spin and talk about songs from his majestic new album, Coke Belda 3 (Gs): A Tribute to the Bee Gees, now available on CD from Kool Kat Musik and as a download from Futureman Records.
I love what Coke has done, pouring his heart out with his peerless covers of some of the greatest melodic pop songs ever recorded; check out my review of Coke’s album here and watch how fast you click on one of the above links.
During this program, Coke talks about his commitment to his Bee Gees project, and why he chose the songs he eventually covered. It’s another in-depth back-and-forth with one of our most creative musicians that you can only hear on In Conversation, the premiere Internet melodic pop music talk show.
