PopOff! #51: Set-O-Mystery, En Memoriam

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 is the final main episode of 2019 and it is a set-o-mystery despite proclamations earlier in September that there would be no more mystery sets. It is also an en memoriam show. So can you guess the connection to all the artists? If helps if you were paying attention to the music headlines hot off the presses this year.
