Alan Haber's Pure Pop Radio is the archive for the premiere website that covered the melodic pop scene with in-depth reviews of new and reissued recordings, and a wide variety of features. We are now closed for new activity.
Everybody knows that Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing is the top of the poppermost weekly radio show covering all things fab. Ken’s been in the thick of Beatles radio for 32 great years–a long, long, long time to be sure. It’s interesting, then, that tonight’s show features a long, long, long set consisting of songs with the word “long” in the title. Pretty cool, huh?
Also singing in fine gear fashion is a set stocked full of solo bonus tracks and an opening run that starts with a live version of Ringo Starr’s “What Goes On” and ends with the Everly Brothers’ “On the Wings of a Nightingale,” written for the duo by none other than Sir Paul McCartney.
Don’t forget to stay tuned at the end of the show, when Ken rolls out his weekly Beatles trivia question. Have your thinking caps ready!
Set your alarm clock for tonight at 9 pm ET for this week’s edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. Enjoy!
We love our Monday nights here at Pure Pop Radio, and we know you do too, so let’s crank up the Internet radio thingamajig and make this gear thing happen!
It’s time for another episode of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing, our weekly celebration of all things Beatles. This week, Ken’s spinning a cool mix of Fabs, Macca, Ringo, Al DiMeola (!), the Traveling Wilburys, John, and a special segment focusing on the Beatlesque music of 1982. Tug of War, anybody? (And don’t miss Ken’s interview with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick!)
Don’t miss a second of the festivities, of course, and you won’t as long as you’re tuned in to Pure Pop Radio tonight at 9 pm ET. Don’t forget to stick around at the end of the show for Ken’s weekly Beatles trivia question. It’s a stumper!
Remember: Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing airs each and every Monday night at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio. Cool!
Here at Pure Pop Radio, we’re rolling full steam ahead with cool specialty programming that will surprise and delight you.
Our latest programming coup, and our second original creation, debuts April 22 at 9 pm ET. The name of the show is Two Music Geeks, an hour-long gab-and-music conglomeration hosted by Alan Haber and Scott W. McKinney, former air personality and Assistant Station Manager at KBEK-FM in Mora, Minnesota.
What exactly will you hear on Two Music Geeks? The setting is simple: Alan and Scott will each pick five favorite tracks, play them and then talk about them. Their spiels will be stocked full of facts and trivia associated with each tune. Sometimes, as in the first edition of the program, songs will be picked at random; in other shows, there will be a theme. No matter the table setting, the shows will be lively and informative and, most importantly, a whole lot of fun.
Two Music Geeks began as an every-so-often Saturday morning interview segment on Scott’s Saturday morning KBEK program. Alan and Scott had a whole lot of fun doing these segments, zeroing in on favorite Beatles and solo-Fabs tunes, songs with great bass lines, and other important topics. With the recent suspension of operations at KBEK, the dynamic duo decided to continue the segments. As they never had a proper name, the moniker Two Music Geeks was borne.
In their 200 decades on this planet, Alan and Scott have been amassing volumes upon volumes full of facts and figures from the college of melodic pop knowledge. They’re practically bursting and needed an outlet to roll out all of their musical know-how. And, hey, what they don’t already know they’ll simply look up, and how!
Join Alan and Scott on Two Music Geeks, debuting Tuesday, April 22 at 9 pm ET. New shows will air every three weeks.
Come join us on Pure Pop Radio’s newest specialty program. We do it all for you!
