PopOff! #13 – Bassology and the Electric Bass Experience

This episode of PopOff! 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.


PopOff! is an “anything goes” musical show hosted by me DJ Bear. 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 climb into the PopOff! Bubble and let’s get to it!!

Also, you can catch PopOff! live Thursdays from 7-10 on KBear Radio. Featuring more songs and after parties with more songs. Plus my other live streamed shows occurring throughout the week. I put the roar in more musical variety. Just join me here at KBear Radio.
