Hi there! You found where to learn and listen to The Rockin’ Pop Party, brought to you in part by Mixcloud. You can catch the show LIVE on Magic 109 at 3 pm Eastern on Friday’s.

The show has been around for years as some of my long-time listeners know. In fact, the show predates all the episodes you see here on my website. Initially, it started at HitMeRadio back in 2008. However, the show was nothing like it is today. Then, in 2013 it came to what once was Sky 106 and stayed there for three years. In June of 2016 for about two months, you could catch The Rockin’ Pop Party on MushroomFM, but then soon went back to Sky 106 until October of 2017, when the station closed its doors. It’s now on Magic 109, where it should stay for good. Needless to say, the show continues and has always been available on Mixcloud.

The Rockin’ Pop Party is a three-hour show consisting of a variety of rock, pop, and country! The first two hours of the show are primarily the music of today, without going back any further than 1980, whereas the last hour is music before 1980. Requests and dedications are welcome throughout the show and feedback it gets makes the show even better!

The show has two segments. The first of which, the “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” is where the listeners decide whether or not an original track or its cover is better. The listener feedback is much appreciated during this segment and extremely fun. Sometimes you’ll find that the cover is way better than the original, but other times, you can’t help but ask; “Why would anyone cover a perfectly good track?” This segment happens at the start of the second hour.

The other, “The Rockin’ Hour in History” is a segment consists of music primarily before 1980. There really isn’t a limit as to how far back this segment will go but does usually play most of your favorites from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. This segment is also one of the more anticipated parts of the program because listeners can get the opportunity to hear how the genres of rock, pop, and country have changed over the years.

Throughout the week, I am always interacting with the listeners of my show on Facebook and Twitter. So, if you want to be involved, by all means, feel free to let me know you’ve listened to any of my episodes or the show live! This also is the best way to send your requests and dedications as well. However, you can contact me through my website, If you’re looking for a more direct approach of getting in touch with me, feel free to call the studio line at +1 (978) 410-3020 and you can be heard on the next episode!
