PopOff! #45: Annual Country Music Checkup

PopOff! #45: Annual Country Music Checkup

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!!

On today’s episode in honor of National Radio Day, I check up on mainstream country music radio to see how things are going with female representation. If you want to hear the test results from my house-call, well listen in. A lot of new and good from fresh acts to legacy acts plus some classics to round it out and of course the all important country waltz and duet! Enjoy!
