PopOff! #55: Bitter Ball 2020, Love Stinks!

Hello Poppies and welcome to the annual bitter ball. A mix of sour, grumpy, peeved, miffed, and jaded love songs. This time we stew about in the 1980s with a strong bent towards the rock side of the decade. Less talkin’ more rockin’ plus some classic film clips. 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.
