Exactly one month ago, our first Pop Tunes Deejay Show made its debut on Pop that Goes Crunch Radio. Our 10th show aired last night–a special mix of soft pop, bubblegum and other sweet musical treats from the 1960s and 1970s that get you singing along.

Alan Haber’s Pop Tunes Deejay Show airs twice weekly on Pop that Goes Crunch Radio–Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 pm ET. The Tuesday show repeats Fridays at 2 pm ET; the Thursday show reprises on the following Monday at 11 am ET. Tuesday night’s show features new and recently-released tunes; Thursday night is Potpourri Night, with melodic pop classics from across the decades. You never know what you’re going to hear next!

Last night’s mix of soft pop, bubblegum and other sweet musical treats was a fun hour of catchy melodies. Check the playlist (all playlists are also posted on the Pop Tunes Deejay Show Facebook page; click here to be magically transported (and while you’re at it, please “Like” it)):

On Sunday at 3 pm ET (noon PT), a repeat of the second Pop Tunes deejay show fills your ears with a 90 minute melodic pop music soundtrack, featuring two sets of new music from such artists as Pop 4, the Corner Laughers, and the Ravines; a set that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that pop music is alive; a long, extended set featuring a half-dozen songs revolving around the word “yesterday”; and much more.

At 5 pm ET (2 pm PT) on Sunday, Alan’s interview with Glen Burtnik and Bob Burger from the Beatles-centric group, the Weeklings, airs along with a trio of classics from the band’s fab, first, self-titled album. It’s a repeat performance from Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation.
