Alan Haber's Pure Pop RadioWe’ve got some exciting new shows to bring to you in the coming weeks (we’ll be announcing them tomorrow). This week, though, three of Pure Pop Radio’s popular specialty shows return. Welcome back Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing, the weekly Beatles music program of record; Things We Said Today, the weekly Beatles roundtable hosted by a quartet of Fabs experts; and Brian Bringelson’s Needle Meets Vinyl, where all of the music revolves at 33 1/3 rpm.

Tonight at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), Every Little Thing will fill the airwaves with an episode featuring an interview with author Anthony Robustelli and a quartet of Beatle-esque-sounding solo songs. This Wednesday, February 3 at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), a wide variety of sumptuous sounds from the Who, the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Guess Who, among others, will spin at 33 1/3 rpm on Needle Meets Vinyl. And this Thursday, February 4 at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT), Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, Al Sussman and Allan Kozinn will talk about Beatles producer Sir George Martin’s 90th birthday, celebrated on January 3, and the Beatles music now streaming on nine online services, including Spotify, on Things We Said Today.
