Roger Joseph Manning Jr., late of Jellyfish and now a once-again solo artist (his terrific new EP Glamping releases via PledgeMusic on May 18), joined me on a very special edition of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation on May 2 to talk about his new release, and a whole lot more.

roger joseph manning jr. glamping coverGlamping’s four hooky songs lasso a variety of pop styles from pure to power for an exhilarating listening experience, helped along by friends such as Chris Price, Jason Falkner and Bleu McAuley. “Operator” tells the sweet story of a lonely man aching for a relationship with a telephone operator. “Funhouse” injects a rock stance into the pop proceedings with Jason Falkner’s guitars and Freddie Mercury-style background vocal harmony stacks. “Is It All a Dream” is an uptempo pop ride, and the closing power ballad “I’m Not Your Cowboy” rides to its finish atop a 10cc-esque approach.

During this program, Roger went in-depth on the making of Glamping, his work on Emitt Rhodes’ 2016 record Rainbow Ends and Secret Friend’s new release, The Divorce Album. He also talked about his time in Jellyfish, and helped me discover the engine that powered one of the band’s most inventive songs, Spilt Milk’s “Sebrina, Paste and Plato.” Plus: What exactly is glamping?

Check out Roger’s PledgeMusic store for the latest availability information on the Glamping EP.
