CLA Radio 10/16/15: Power Pop II


The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 10/16/15, 7:00 PM Pacific/10:00 PM Eastern) will take another look at the wonderful world of Power Pop. (I, too, will apply the label with–in John Borack’s words–“blissful indifference.”)

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat!

The Spotify playlist is here.

Thanks to Breck Nichols for his help with the set list, and for additional set list suggestions, used or not, from Rick Sheridan, Gary Eaton, Bridey, red seewun, and Alex Nelson.
