POP Goes The World!

Sep 2015

POP To The Rescue


On today's Pop Goes The World, I'll be questioning the validity of a system that rewards sociopaths, while punishing altruism. Then I'll open up the phones for a Donahue style free for all in the second hour.

Nah, just kidding.
I'll be playing two hours of flawless POP like I always do.
