PopOff! #48 The Sound Of The Letter P

PopOff! #48 The Sound Of The Letter P

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 Novemeber and time for the PopOff! tradition of honoring both Sesame Street and KFOG (which would go through it’s archive alphabetically once a year) by picking a letter and going through my catalog. And this year it is the letter p so expect plenty of power hits, peculiar, peculiar pop nuggets, and and maybe a power ballad. The finale features a slew of #1 hits that start with P. And for your bonus beat I picked what I think is the most famous P song of all time (and possibly one of the most famous songs ever period). What song is it? Well I’ll let you guess or you can even take bets.
