PopOff! #26: The Sound of the Letter B

PopOff! #26: The Sound of the Letter B

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!!

Hello poppies, November brings back my very popular alphabetical soup where I pick a letter a play songs from my catalog that start with that letter in alphabetical order. And this time around the ol’ theme-a-tron has chosen the letter B. And there is a bevy of great beats from bossa nova to blues that start with the letter be so let’s get to it!
