PopOff! #66: Annual Country Music Check-Up

Hello poppies, it is time for my annual check-up on mainstream country radio and the country charts!!!

Has any progress been made in female representation? Well yes, at the time of this posting Maddie & Tae are at #1 … on the chart an ACTUAL country song and by a female act!

It only took two years for the song to hit #1 and 6+ for a real country by a female act to reach #1. I featured that song on last year’s check up mix. But overall, things are bleak for woman and for real country on the radio and the charts, so here is your antidote. Three hours of chatter and more of the records that matter.

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.
