On this all-new edition of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation, airing tonight, right after Every Little Thing at 9 pm ET (6 pm PT), you’ll hear three great songs from the record. Hear Ray talk about the writing and production in his own “whimsical” way. And listen for tracks from Whimsicality; we’re playing all of them in rotation exclusively on our station.

needle meets vinyl

But wait…there’s more! This Wednesday night, April 13, at 8 pm ET (5 p PT), Brian Bringelson stacks the vinyl high for a new edition of Needle Meets Vinyl, spinning classic tracks from Question Mark and the Mysterians, the Beach Boys, Neko Case, Bob Dylan and a four-piece from Liverpool, England you may well have heard of.

Needle Meets Vinyl is the weekly show during which all songs are played from vinyl records. The music spans the decades during which popular music has flourished.

Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, Al Sussman and Allan Kozzin talk to famed Beatles author Bruce Spizer, whose scholarly, and fun, books, have delighted fans for many years. A few of these books are now available in updated, digital editions. Bruce uncovers the details of the Beatles’ butcher cover saga, and takes a look at the questions, and answers, surrounding the non-release of the group’s famous Hollywood Bowl concert on CD.

Things We Said Today is a weekly survey of all things Beatles that’s hosted by a quartet of Beatles experts–today’s Fab Four, if you will. Ken Michaels, host of Every Little Thing, is joined byBeatlefan Executive Editor Al Sussman, Steve Marinucci (Beatles Examiner), and Allan Kozinn, longtime music critic. Other well-known Beatles experts sometimes sit in with the core group. Things We Said Today airs Thursday nights at 8 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.
