I am a pop‐culture historian, radio addict, and music-fiend “poptimist” who loves ingenious/catchy/smart/intriguing music made from the 1920’s onward. But I am predisposed to like Beatles/power pop, Bacharachesque orchestral pop (i.e. lonely big-city glamor), deep soul classics, one‐hit wonders, new wave and punk and post-punk, World music, weird music, introspective music, exuberant kids’ music. In other words, I'm not afraid of catchy melodies, pretty melodies, or haunting melodies. I want the music I play to touch your soul the way it does mine. I do also love to talk about the context of the times and the behind-the-scenes stories.
