PopOff! #31: The Sound Of 1989

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 climb into the PopOff! Bubble and let’s get to it!!

Hello poppies! It’s the first main episode of the new year and as I often do I start off in tribute to my hero Dave Morey by paying homage to his iconic and world famous 10@10 but instead of 10 great songs 1 great year I do 1 great year and a bunch of great songs plus I’ll be littering pop culture throughout. So what year did the theme-a-tron pick? Listen to find out. Also as a teaser it’s 1 great year but not a year of Hot 100 hits instead I celebrate the mainstream rock charts! Enjoy!
