Two Music Geeks Returns with Special Memorial Day Show Dedicated to Pop’s Fallen Heroes

The Two Music Geeks Remember Our Fallen Pop Music Heroes Tonight at 9 pm ET

The Two Music Geeks Remember Our Fallen Pop Music Heroes Tonight at 9 pm ET

On this Memorial Day at 9 pm ET, Two Music Geeks makes a welcome return to the airwaves to honor pop music’s fallen heroes–the artists who left us too soon, whose music lives on in our hearts and minds.

Alan Haber and Scott W. McKinney have chosen a dozen songs to remember some of their favorite moments in time, when all was right with the world–when the sounds of pop music’s greatest recordings filled the air with hope and wonder. These are some of the great creators, whose vision and talent made the grade through careers both long and short. These are the artists and songs that we remember and cherish.

During this very special two-hour show, we rewind the clock and cherish the memories of artists including Buddy Holly, Larry Ramos of the Association, Chris Dedrick of the Free Design, Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers, Gerry Rafferty, Phil Seymour, Mike Smith of the Dave Clark 5, and Rob Grill of the Grass Roots. We play the songs we remember them by and talk about the impact they had on everyone’s lives.

Don’t miss tonight’s edition of Two Music Geeks, honoring our fallen pop music heroes, airing on Pure Pop Radio at 9 pm ET. Alan and Scott hope to see you on the radio.

Two Music Geeks. Show Number Two: Bang Zoom! We’re a Hit, We Are!

The Two Music Geeks Say: It's Chic to be a Geek!

The Two Music Geeks Say: It’s Chic to be a Geek!

It’s official: Two Music Geeks is a bona fide kind of appointment type radio show! Show number two, which focused on songs about all types of girls, built on the promise of show number one and sends a clear message to radio land: These two music geeks, Alan Haber and Scott W. McKinney, fresh from their geeky man caves where band bumper stickers and posters are strewn all over the place, are here to stay. They’ve got a combined 200 years of music knowledge in those noggins of theirs and they’re ready to keep drawing on it for future programs.

There are two, in fact, just about ready to go. The first, a special get-together that pays tribute to our fallen pop stars, airs on Memorial Day evening, May 26, at 9 pm ET. It was hard for these two music geeks to choose who to honor in talk and song, but they arrived at a group of wonderful artists that you’re sure to enjoy, including Buddy Holly, Hurricane Smith, the Everly Brothers (for Phil Everly), the Free Design (for Chris Dedrick, Gerry Rafferty, Phil Seymour, the Dave Clark Five (for Mike Smith), and many more. It’s two hours of paying tribute to those that have gone–an equally somber and uplifting show that we think you’ll enjoy and remember always.

Scott W. McKinney: From live and local radio to the world over. Welcome, Scott, to Pure Pop Radio!

Also coming up is a show that puts the geeky spotlight on horn bands and records that feature horns prominently. We’re going to keep the list of artists being given the geeky treatment in this particular show quiet for now, but you can bet that it won’t be long before we spill. Watch this space for all of the details, coming soon!

Thanks again for all of the love, folks. Alan and Scott appreciate all of the hugs and kisses and geeky poems and bottles of Yoo-hoo that have come and continue to come their way. Keep ’em coming, and be there, next to your Internet radios for the Memorial Day program. Until then!

The Two Music Geeks Take Over the Airwaves Tomorrow Night. It’s Time for Songs about Girls!

The Two Music Geeks Say: It's Chic to be a Geek!

The Two Music Geeks Say: It’s Chic to be a Geek!

It’s chic to be a geek again because the Two Music Geeks are back! The first Geeks show was a huge success, so Alan Haber and Scott W. McKinney have put their collective noggins together and come up with another lively and fun show, this time zeroing in on songs about girls!

Alan and Scott have collected an eclectic selection of tunes from across the landscape of pop music. You’ll hear the Beatifics singing about “This Year’s Jessica,” the Monkees rocking out about “Mary, Mary,” and the Rolling Stones succumbing to the charms of “Lady Jane.” But wait! There’s more: Randy Newman will tell the story of weak-willed wives in the typically-twisted “They Just Got Married,” Tiny Tim will warble the Addrisi Brothers’ classic “She’s Just Laughing at Me,” and Stackridge will tell the tale of a woman who leaves damaged men in her rearview mirror, as outlined in the wonderful tune “Sliding Down the Razor Blade of Love.”

And that’s only scratching the surface of what’s in store for you on tomorrow night’s second edition of Two Music Geeks. The fun begins at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio, your 24-hour-a-day Internet radio home for the greatest melodic pop in the universe.

McKinney play their favorite pop songs and talk about them, throwing around a whole lot of trivia, facts and figures, and the kind of cool stuff you’d expect from twin sons of different mothers who share a lifetime of music between them–200 years, in fact!
