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 1st and 3rd 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 week’s real life Bonus Beats of Horror looks at what music has had to say about your worst fears… or rather your worst phobias. Don’t worry, this will not be that scary at all. Unless of course you have melophobia…. But if you have that then probably have not ever listened to this show (or Talking Heads) so it doesn’t really matter. Enjoy!
