POP Goes The Beginning


The last time POP Goes The World fell on New Years Day was 3 years ago when I was in the Tuesday night 11p.m. time slot, and I did a show in honor of the first day of the year playing some of my favorite opening songs on debut albums.

I LOVED that show!

and hey, TODAY'S New Years Day!

and my show is on Fridays now!

So, guess what, kids?

I'll once again honor the first day of the year by playing some of my favorite opening tracks from debut albums!

These are the tracks that announce the bands. so they gotta come out swingin'!
