LISTEN: PopOff #56: Under The Covers With Linda Ronstadt

Hello Poppies! On today’s show, we go under the covers and explore the original versions of many of Linda Ronstadt’s most iconic hits and how her talent for song selection brought many of her peers into the spotlight while also updating classic songs for the new generations of music fans. Enjoy!

PopOff! is an “anything goes” musical show hosted by me DJ Bear. 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!!

Also, you can catch PopOff! live Thursdays from 7-10 on KBear Radio. Featuring more songs and after parties with more songs. Plus my other live streamed shows occurring throughout the week. I put the roar in more musical variety. Just join me here at KBear Radio.
