Surrender To The POP


I have the enormous pleasure of hosting POP Goes The World core artists, The Posies, on tomorrow’s Cause & Effect.

As you can imagine, I’m beside myself with giddiness (a shameful sight, to be sure).

So, to be sure I maintain my composure tomorrow afternoon as I sit across two of my pop idols (Ken Stringfellow, and Jon Auer, respectively), I’m going to shoot my POP wad, as it were, and try to get it all out of my system this afternoon.

You’ll forgive me in advance for my lack of control.

Thank you.
