The Fabs Flash the Cash on this Week’s Every Little Thing

everylittlethinglogo-smallThe latest, swinging edition of Ken Michaels’ Beatles spectacular, Every Little Thing, ushers in the show’s April slate of broadcasts with a set that’s all about the green: Money is the subject at hand in tonight’s theme set, and it’s a doozy. The fun kicks off tonight at 8 pm ET (5pm PT).

Before luxuriating in a set stocked full of cash (not literally, mind you), Ken rolls out an opening, varied set of solo Beatles tunes from George Harrison, Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Bonus track: Peter and Gordon check in with a live version of “I Don’t Want to See You Again” from the Ed Sullivan Show.

ann-margretTonight’s second set presents a Beatles track from the Live at the BBC collection (“I Just Don’t Understand”) and the same song waxed by actress and singer Ann-Margret. Wings’ “Hi, Hi, Hi” caps off the musical fireworks.

The Beatles’ all-about-money set counts out the dollars and cents with six group and solo tracks, each with the word money in the title. Entry point: “Taxman.” The song that plays after the last dollar is counted: “Money (That’s What I Want).” It’s a fun set that comes at a particular, shall we say, taxing time of year.

Don’t miss the fun tonight at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT). Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing will be on the air. It’s going to be a fab-ulous time for all!

Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing Lights Up Pure Pop Radio’s 25 Days of Holiday Cheer

everylittlethinglogo-smallKen Michaels’ Every Little Thing is brand-new tonight at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) on Pure Pop Radio. This fun episode is one of our gifts to you during our 25 Days of Holiday Cheer.

Ken kicks off the fun with a wonderful opening, varied segment that brings tracks from the Beatles, John Lennon, George Harrison, and the Bellfuries, who roll through an energetic cover of the Fabs’ “She’s a Woman,” a track suggested to Ken by our own Alan Haber.

Tonight’s second segment presents an interview with Beatles author Kit O’Toole, who offers that Paul McCartney’s Press to Play is one of the overlooked albums in the bassist’s solo career. You’ll hear two songs from Press to Play: the grand ballad, “Only Love Remains,” and the experimental wonder, “Pretty Little Head.”

The show concludes with a set of album closers from Beatles and solo Beatles classic long players, including John Lennon’s “Oh Yoko!” from John’s album Imagine, and “You and Me (Babe),” which was the final cut on Ringo Starr’s Ringo.

An Encore Performance, Paul McCartney’s Tour Schedule and George Harrison’s Dark Horse Album are In the Spotlight on This Week’s Beatles Shows

purepoplogoHave we got a Fab week ahead for you? Indeed we do! The very first edition of the syndicated version of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing airs again tonight on Pure Pop Radio at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), and a new, information-packed entry in the ongoing weekly roundtable series, Things We Said Today, gets rolling this Thursday, September 3, at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT).

everylittlethinglogo-smallWe first aired the inaugural edition of the syndicated version of Every Little Thing back on February 17, 2014. It plays again tonight, August 31, with Ken spinning a pair of Beatles Anthology cuts and presenting an expertly-curated set of songs with the word “peace” in the title. Prominently featured is John Lennon’s eternal anthem, “Give Peace a Chance.”

the-beatles-things-we-said-todayOver on Things We Said Today this Thursday night, Ken, Beatles Examiner writer Steve Marinucci, Beatlefan editor Al Sussman, and musicologist Allan Kozinn take up the task of determining whether Paul McCartney’s current way of announcing upcoming tour dates–presenting them to the public a few dates at a time–is a valid course of action. The panel also talks about George Harrison’s Dark Horse album, questioning how good the songs are, discussing how successful George’s version of “Bye Bye Love” is, and wondering whether the quality of George’s voice is a factor for people listening.

A new feature, tucked into the closing moments of Thursday night’s all-new program, is one during which panelists ask Beatles-related questions of each other. The answers may surprise, and will certainly delight, you!

Every Little Thing is the premiere, syndicated program playing Beatles group and solo recordings. Hosted by longtime radio personality Ken Michaels, the show airs a mix of new and archived shows on Monday nights at 8 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.

Things We Said Today is a weekly survey of all things Beatles that’s hosted by a quartet of Beatles experts–today’s Fab Four, if you will. Ken Michaels, host of Every Little Thing, which airs Monday nights at 8 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio, is joined by Beatlefan Executive Editor Al Sussman, Steve Marinucci (Beatles Examiner), and Allan Kozinn, longtime music critic. Other well-known Beatles experts sometimes sit in with the core group. Things We Said Today airs on Thursday nights at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT).
