wow-2It’s cool! It’s fun! It’s like…Wow! Welcome to Pure Pop Radio’s all-new website design, stressing the fun that is inherent in the kind of music we like to call melodic pop.

Right On!

Right On!

Our peppy mascots at the top of the page–Left Jeff on the left and Right On! on the right, flashing a pair of lively peace signs–welcome you to the all-new Pure Pop Radio website. It’s easy to get around our new layout; you’ll find all of our daily stories in the center of the page, and all of our navigation on the left: easy-to-click links to our most popular areas, including Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation podcasts and Pure Pop Radio’s Hall of Fame, monthly archives, recent posts, story categories, and tags. It’s all there to make it easier for you to jump around from here to there and ensure that you don’t miss a thing.

This new, fun website design came about because we all could use a bit of fun these days, and what better way to get that vibe than with a spirited, happy website layout that speaks to the heart of our beloved melodic pop music!
