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 most 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! For your Valentine’s Day Bonus Beats, we continue the Bitterball fun with a selection of songs that all feature a proper name in the title. Last year, we hit the 70s and this year we continue pouting about in the 1990s. Enjoy!
