The good news? The Pure Pop Radio website will continue to put the spotlight on the greatest melodic pop music in the universe with in-depth reviews, features and occasional, new episodes of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation.

The bad news? Alan Haber’s Pure Pop Radio will stream its last set of catchy melodic pop music on August 25, owing to my ongoing health issues that have become more prevalent over the past year. Alan Haber’s Pop Tunes Deejay Show has already stopped broadcasting.

pop tunes disc smallThe decision to take Alan Haber’s Pure Pop Radio and the Pop Tunes Deejay Show off the air was a difficult one; I have been broadcasting various forms of Pure Pop Radio on and off for 23 years. I had hoped to continue broadcasting for a long time to come but, sadly, my health issues have come between me and that possibility.

Soon, I will be presenting a multipart salute to Klaatu’s classic Sir Army Suit album, which was released 40 years ago this month. You’ll be treated to in-depth audio interviews with the band members, who talk about Sir Army Suit and three of their favorite Klaatu tracks from across the band’s catalog. Plus, I will take a long look at Sir Army Suit in an extensive review.

More on the upcoming Klaatu coverage soon.

I appreciate all of your support for Pure Pop Radio throughout the years. I hope you will continue to stick around for all that is to come across these pages.

  1. Sad to lose the show, but glad that you’re going to concentrate on getting healthy, which is the most important thing. We still have the website and your insightful musings to soothe our wanderlust and for that, I am grateful. P.S.- to help send of the radio show in style, your copy of our new album is currently on its way to your not-so-secret location via the US Postal Service. Thanks for all the years of great music and support and keep up the good fight on all fronts. Peace – Kenny Sherman/The Turnback

    1. Hi, Kenny. Thanks for your very kind comments. I really appreciate it. Thanks for sending the new album; I look forward to receiving it. I’ll be keeping up the good fight with reviews and features on the website. Thanks again. Alan

  2. Alan, Sorry to hear this news. Health is the most important thing in life. I wish you all the best and want to thank you so very much for supporting me and Bubble Gum Orchestra since 2011 right up through our new release Zentopia.

    Sincerely, Michael Laine Hildebrandt

  3. Thanks so much, Michael. I appreciate your good thoughts. I wish you well in the future with any new Bubble Gum Orchestra projects. Please keep me mind when you do release something new, as I will be reviewing albums on this site. Thanks again.


  4. Very sorry to hear about this. I’ve enjoyed Pure Pop Radio for years and want to give you a shout-out for the interview you did with Peggy March in 2017. Few people appreciate her beyond her #1 U.S. hit, and your podcast with her was the only time I ever heard her interviewed at length. This is the kind of thing that made PPR so unique. Good luck in the future, esp. with your health.

    1. Thanks very much, Tony, for your kind comments. I’m glad you enjoyed my interview with Peggy March. I will still be doing In Conversation on the Pure Pop Radio website, so look for new interviews there. Reviews and features, too. Thanks very much for your support. Alan
