PopOff #18 – The Sound Of Protest

Sometimes when things get out of hand in your country the most patriotic thing one can do is protest. And it is no surprise that when it comes to protesting, musicians have something to say! So for my annual 4th of July mix it is a vertical tasting of protest in music. And as is tradition 50 songs for 50 Sates… though this year may go SLIGHTLY longer because that’s the mood I am in.

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.
