PopOff! #13 – Bassology and the Electric Bass Experience

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!!

This episode is part one in a series exploring iconic bass lines in popular music. And in part one we start with the upright as it transitions to electric with a little help from one Mr. Paul Tutmarc.
