Pre-Existing POP



What's my pre-existing condition?



Yes, I know radio is an aural medium, but I still like to think that what I wear somehow translates over the air. Adds to my "energy" if you will. That's why I've put together this unstoppable little ensemble to wear on this afternoon's Pop Goes The World. I think it'll add a dash of class to the whole affair, no? Meet up at Golden Coral for the early bird special afterwards. I'll save you a place in line.
