PopOff #11 – New Moon on Monday, Vol. 1

PopOff #11 – New Moon on Monday, Vol. 1

PopOff! is an “anything goes” musical show hosted by Bay Area DJ Bear. Sometimes it’s a theme, sometimes it’s a big ol’ birthday shout out tribute show to a specific artist(s). Shows occur on Mondays with the occasional Thursday Bonus Beats. Every episode is a unique sonic road trip through the multitudes of genres, eras, and musicians in recorded music. So if you have an open mind for musical exploration beyond mainstream radio programming climb into the PopOff! Bubble and let’s get to it!!

It is a new moon on Monday and since there are SO many moon songs, PopOff! tradition dictates I break out the theme-a-tron and see what genre of moon related songs I will mix up for you. Want to know where I’ll go this show you’ll have to take a listen.
