Power Pop Portal

Playlist for 4-6-14 (Show #85) – Beatles Top 5 History / 2014 Rock Hall of Fame Inductees

Produced and Hosted by Glenn Richards

AUDIO: Listen HERE!

On the 85th edition of the Power Pop Portal, we pay tribute to three events happening this week: First, it’s the 50th anniversary of the week that The Beatles made history as the only act ever to simultaneously occupy the Billboard Hot 100 chart’s entire top five positions! That happened on the chart dated April 4, 1964. Not only did they occupy the top five, but they held seven other positions as well and we’ll count down all of them!

Second, the 29th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place on Thursday, April 10th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. We’ll hear from all of this year’s Inductees: Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall and John Oates, KISS, Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, and Cat Stevens; as well as Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement Inductees Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham; and Award for Musical Excellence Inductee, The E Street Band.

Finally, April 5th marked the 20th anniversary of Nirvana front-man, Kurt Cobain’s death.

Produced and Hosted by Glenn Richards

The Pleasure Seekers (featuring the [Suzi] Quatro Sisters)

March is Women’s History Month so we thought we’d pay tribute to some of the women who rock our world musically. There are too many bands and artists and not enough time, so to narrow things down, we thought we’d only feature only all-female groups – no guys allowed, except for your host, Glenn Richards. Enjoy
