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.

Buddy Holly

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.
