Show 097: Shake It Up! – Playlist and Archived Stream

listenup097

Listen Up! returns to the sounds of power pop. Expect a high dose of action shaking tunes filled with hooks, riffs, harmonies, fat chords and more. Hear from the precursors, the lonely souls who kept the sounds alive in the early 70’s, the brief flash of commercial success in the late 70’s, those underground dabblers in the 80’s and because this stuff is timeless…even stuff in the now.

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook . Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
