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 today’s bonus beats, I celebrate a very important genre of music. The all important soundtrack to your backyard BBQ!
AND not only are their bonus bonus beats a plenty! But there is a second episode this week celebrating some of my favorite pool party anthems! That’s right, 2 for 1 this week. Enjoy!
