Despite our best efforts to the contrary (well, at least one of us had our annual, preventative shot–not that it did any good), our usually energetic staff has been unable to get any work done during the past week thanks to the flu busting down our doors and settling in for an extended period of achy, breaky muscles, feverish episodes and just a plain lack of anything remotely approaching energy.
Yes, our long period of silence (well, everything seems to take forever when you’re sick) is due to my wife and I getting walloped with the flu simultaneously. To say it’s been fun would be, well, telling a whopper of a fib; it hasn’t been fun at all. And let me tell you, if I can’t really enjoy an episode of The Andy Griffith Show, my goose must be good and cooked.
So we’re in a holding pattern here at the ever-spacious, but currently flu-ridden Pure Pop Radio headquarters as we wait for the unwelcome bug to hit the road, Jack, and make its merry way to, you know, somewhere else. And, because we’re feeling ever so weak and washed out, we’re benching both Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing and the Fab talk roundtable, Things We Said Today, until next week, when we’re fairly sure it will be safe to swim again in our melodic waters. I mean, we don’t intend on having the flu forever!
Speaking of Every Little Thing, the premiere, weekly Beatles music show will, at least for the foreseeable future, be airing new episodes every few weeks, as they are made available to us. Show 66, in fact, is set for next Monday, May 18. Things We Said Today will also be back in its regularly-scheduled saddle next week–on May 19, to be exact.
We’ve got lots of new music to add to our playlist, a new edition of I Love that Song, a couple of new Timmy Sean Songs of the Week, a couple of cool reviews, and who knows what else waiting in the wings, all of which we hope to bring to you later this week or early next. So hang in there with us, won’t you? Check out some of the items you may have missed around these parts while we nurse ourselves back to health. You’ll be glad you did.
And, it goes without saying, you can always fire up your Internet radio receptacle and while away the hours with a dose or three of the greatest melodic pop music from the ’60s to today by clicking on one of the listen links below. We’re Pure Pop Radio–we’re open, flu or not, 24 hours a day!
