We’ve Got All the Trimmings! Jammin’ James Riley and Al Sussman Serve Up Tasty Thanksgiving-Week Specialty Shows

twoThis being a short week, what with Thanksgiving looming large in our legend (your obligatory George Harrison reference for today), we’ve got just two, tasty specialty shows for you, sure to spice up any festive holiday spread (and let us not forget, our music library is 9,100-plus tunes strong).

waveTonight’s all-new episode of Jammin’ James Riley’s Catching a Wave (8 pm ET) serves up a potpourri of summertime sounds from such artists as Dick Dale, Kylie Hughes, the Monkees, Papa Doo Run Run, the Explorers Club, and Dion. Wax up your surfboards and tune in to feel the warmth of the musical summer sun.

al-sussman-fans-on-the-run-buttonTomorrow night’s first-run Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation (8 pm ET) finds Alan Haber catching up with Beatlefan Executive Editor Al Sussman in a wide-ranging 90-plus minute show during which the topic is songs that hit and should have hit number one in the years 1964-1969. Al looks at each song played during the show from a historical perspective, touching on its popularity and the reasons why it made the chart grade, or almost hit the mark. If you’re a chart history buff, this is a must-listen-to episode.

So that we can get everything ready for our Thanksgiving celebration, we’re giving our other specialty shows a break this week, but don’t fret: they’ll be back swinging next week.
