PopOff! #82: CA Homegrown #4, Vertical Tasting

Hello Poppies! It is July and it is time for my annual celebrate a state series. And as is tradition I always start with my home state of CA. And this celebration we do a vertical tasting of hits from CA artists capped off by a solid hour of new and good music from my East Bay neck of the woods. 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.
