al sussmanAl Sussman, Beatlefan executive editor and co-host of the weekly Beatles roundtable Things We Said Today, heard here on Pure Pop Radio, returns to Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation next Tuesday, November 22 at 8 pm ET to talk about classic chart hits and near hits.

During our wide-ranging discussion, Al and I focus on the years 1964-1969, Fab years all. The longtime fan of great music and observer of chart trends chose two songs from each year to talk about–one a number one hit and the other a song that should have been a hit.

The stage is set for each of the songs with a rundown of certain interesting events that occurred during the years in which they charted. Al looks at each song from a historical perspective, touching on its popularity and the reasons why it made the chart grade, or almost hit the mark.

Join Al and I next Tuesday night, November 22 at 8 pm ET for an informative and entertaining look at the stories behind the successes of chart hits and almost-chart hits on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation.
