The 2019 Valentine’s Q&A Special of The Rockin’ Pop Party

Over the last few years, I’ve been presenting a special show once a year for listeners to ask questions and get answers about love, relationships and intimacy. Aside from not presenting one in 2018, this show has been somewhat an annual thing! Well, it’s back and only a couple weeks away!

On Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 3 pm Eastern time, join me and special guest, Alternative Ash on Magic 109 for The 3rd Annual Valentine’s Q&A Special of The Rockin’ Pop Party! This is your opportunity to ask questions about love, relationships and intimacy and get some great advice. Now, whether or not it works for you, is a different story! If asking questions isn’t your thing though, there will be some great love and hate songs throughout the show, including in the “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” and “The Rockin’ Hour in History” too!

If you do want to send your questions to us, feel free to submit them by email, through my website’s contact form, over social media or by phone and we’ll do our best to answer them come showtime! We give you the ability to ask your questions both publicly and privately, as well as live or ahead of time!

To send your questions ahead of time and ensure they get answered on the air, either email me or Alternative Ash, use the contact form on my website or call my studio line at +1 (978) 410-3020. If I don’t answer, just leave a voicemail message and we’ll either play it come showtime or mention it on air and then answer it. Keep in mind, your questions should be appropriate for all audiences and we do reserve the right to not answer any questions if deemed inappropriate to us. You can also elect to leave it anonymously, in any of the above mentioned ways if you wish to remain private.

If you’d like to ask your questions to us live, we will be taking them on Twitter and Facebook. When sending your questions on Twitter, we ask that you use the hashtag ‘Magic109′ (#Magic109) in your tweet, so that everyone can see your tweets who’s interested in Magic 109 and we can read them on the air as they arrive, whether you mention us or not! If you’d prefer to send them privately, I do have direct messages on Twitter available for everyone, whether you follow me or not. Remember, when it comes to Facebook, you must be a friend to either myself or Alternative Ash to ask your questions over Facebook Messenger. Neither of us will ever mention who sent the question when sent privately, unless you explicitly tell us otherwise. We will also be taking your calls by phone as well! You may call in to the show by dialing +1 (978) 410-3020 and speak to both of us. Just remember, your call will be recorded for The Rockin’ Pop Party’s archive, that is released sometime after the show is finished. Again, both myself and Alternative Ash do reserve the right to decline on answering your question on air if it is not appropriate for all audiences.

There you have it! A plethora of ways to ask your questions, get involved and get the answers to some things about relationships, love and intimacy you’ve been dying to know! Not only that, but an overall awesome show featuring love/hate songs and your “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” and “The Rockin’ Hour in History” as well! It all starts again on Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 3 pm Eastern, exclusively on Magic 109, the only station breaking the radio dial, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week!

Season 6 and the premiere of The Rockin’ Pop Party

It’s been almost three months since the last episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party was shared on Mixcloud, but I am pleased to announce the next season of The Rockin’ Pop Party, season 6, will air LIVE every Friday at 3 pm Eastern (noon Pacific) on Magic 109! Those of you that have never heard of Magic 109 or my show before are in for a treat. Those that have heard of the station and/or my show, shouldn’t be all that surprised!

Magic 109 is a brand new station, focusing on the presenters, instead of the listeners. Their philosophy is that if the presenter is happy doing their show, than chances are, the listener is too! The music they play is mainly focused from the 60’s on up through the 90’s, but they do play outside of those decades and do have ‘Christian’ content on Sunday’s, as well as promoting interaction with their listeners. Just check out the website for more information about the station, it’s presenters and programming!

Back to The Rockin’ Pop Party though. There are some great specials in store for season 6, including; “Under the Covers”, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Special”, “The Rockin’ Pop Halloween Special”, “The Rockin’ Pop Left Over Edition”, “The Rockin’ ‘Round the Christmas Tree’ Pop Party”, “The Valentine’s Q&A Special” and any other random ideas that may come to my head down the road! Oh’, and I will take your suggestions and ideas for future shows as well too!

If you don’t know already, the show has three segments, squeezed in three hours for the most part. The first two hours is mostly the music from the 80’s on up through today and has no particular name or title. I will take your requests and interact with you though. In the second hour, I present a segment called the “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” for your entertainment, which basically is an original track, followed by a cover, both of which are released after 1980. You then choose the better version and the winner is announced the following week! I’ll even sneak peek the contender for the next show as well. The last segment, everyone’s favorite, “The Rockin’ Hour in History” is featured during the last hour. It contains tunes before 1980 and occasionally features a specific year. It’s then your job as the listener to guess what year it is. Clues are given throughout the segment to help you figure it out though, so no worries!

Enough about the show. What can you expect on the premiere episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party on Magic 109 this Friday? Lots of stuff! I’m not to sure what we’ll do for your “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” at the moment, but I’m sure you’ll find it worth your while to tune in and find out. “The Rockin’ Hour in History” will more and likely feature a specific year. What year is it? Well, that’s for me to know and you to find out! Of course, I’ll take your requests throughout the show and would love to hear from you! You can find my contact details on my site, make requests through the ‘Request Form’ on Magic 109’s website, call the studio line at +1 (978) 410-3020 or reach out to me on social media. The choice is up to you on what you wanna do!

With all that said, I do hope you’ll tune in to the season 6 premiere of The Rockin’ Pop Party and the first episode to air on Magic 109 this Friday (August 31st, 2018) at 3 pm Eastern, that’s noon Pacific, right after The Rock Vault with Brice Mull, on Magic 109, breaking the radio dial, one tune at a time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

The Rockin’ Pop Party returns LIVE to internet radio! Well… Sorta!

It’s been a very long time since The Rockin’ Pop Party has been live, but I am pleased to announce that it will return LIVE to internet radio on April 14th, 2018 at 4:00pm Eastern! Well, sort of anyway.

G Spot EntertainmentSince I got the new PC, I have been quietly working on providing a platform for The Rockin’ Pop Party to stream live. This also opens up other great opportunities as well. This platform is what I like to lovingly call, G Spot Entertainment, the best music and entertainment, one ‘eargasm’ at a time!

Currently, G Spot Entertainment is only streaming when a show is LIVE and there is no music or automation before or after the live presentation. Right now, G Spot Entertainment is only used to stream the show LIVE, to provide the interaction that it once had when it was broadcasted on legit (or in some cases, illegitimate) internet radio stations.

You can tune in with your favorite media player or mobile device and view the stream statistics using the G Spot Entertainment widget on the left side of my website. There may be other methods of tuning in at a later time, if it becomes necessary. For now though, this is what you get!

Don’t worry, The Rockin’ Pop Party will still be provided as a podcast on Blubrry, Google Play, iTunes, Mixcloud, Stitcher and TuneIn. That won’t change, but it means that it will be released more and likely on Saturday night or early Sunday morning instead of on Friday’s.

With all the technical ‘mambo jumbo’ out of the way, I do hope you’ll catch the The Rockin’ Pop Party LIVE every Saturday at 4:00pm Eastern, beginning April 14th, 2018. If you have any questions, comments or concerns about G Spot Entertainment or The Rockin’ Pop Party for that matter, feel free to get in touch and I’ll do my best to answer your feedback.

The Rockin’ Pop Party get’s funny!

Every week, I do The Rockin’ Pop Party in it’s usual format with the “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” in the second hour and “The Rockin’ Hour in History” to wrap up the last hour. However, wouldn’t it be nice to deviate from the traditional format to something a bit different? Well, I’d like to announce that The Rockin’ Pop Party will be for one week only, The Rockin’ Pop Parody!

Initially, this idea was more of an accident, but aren’t mistakes wonderful sometimes? I mean, if it weren’t for a spelling error, this show would have never happened! This special episode will consist of comedy bits, parodies and just fun music in general. The show will air on Saturday, July 15th, 2017 at 4:00pm Eastern! There will be a “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” and will have “The Rockin’ Hour in History” too! If you’re a fan of comedy, need a laugh, or just want a good reason to smile, then I’d encourage you to check out this show!

This special episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party will be LIVE on Sky 106 and will be on it’s TeamTalk server as well! There will generally be more commentary during this one-off show too, which means you the listeners are welcome to join in on the festivities! Your hearing about this now, because I’d love your contributions to the show! Just contact me for any requests or dedications, or whether you have any comical topics of discussion that should be shared on air! I do hope you’ll join me for this occasion, as I’m pretty sure you’ll at least laugh once during the show. It all happens again on Saturday, July 15th, 2017 at 4:00pm Eastern on Sky 106, where you always get the best variety out of the clear blue sky!

Season 5 of The Rockin’ Pop Party marks a new era in entertainment!

Since May of 2010, The Rockin’ Pop Party has been a stronghold to a couple of internet radio stations that have had the honor and privilege to carry the program, in particular the now defunct HitMeRadio and it’s home as of now, Sky 106. On June 3rd, 2017, a significant change to the show will occur that will forever immortalize all future episodes! The season five premiere of The Rockin’ Pop Party will mark a new beginning and promising future!

The most significant changes to the show will be its new intros for the start of the show and “The Rockin’ Hour in History” featured in the last hour. The new episodes will also have specific new spots, liners, drops, a new outro, and other content that will set this season apart from all past seasons. For more than seven years, The Rockin’ Pop Party has used the same intros for each hour of the show and it’s outro to wrap it up, and even though it has evolved over the years, it has pretty much stuck to the same content. Sure, the old intros and outro will be missed, but I promise you that the new ones will be just as unforgettable as the old ones!

Like every other mark of a new season of The Rockin’ Pop Party, there is always all the specific and special shows to look forward to; some of them being “The Under the Covers” episode in September, “The Rockin’ Pop Halloween Radio Show” around Halloween, “The Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” special in December, not to mention all the other spontaneous ones along the way! I have quite a few new ideas as well and am looking forward to sharing those with you all as well!

The new season of The Rockin’ Pop Party again begins on June 3rd, 2017 on Sky 106 and will definitely be something you don’t want to miss! If you have any suggestions for season five of The Rockin’ Pop Party, then by all means let me know, as I’d love to hear from you!

The first upcoming event on the way is The 2nd Annual Valentine’s Q&A Special of The Rockin’ Pop Party. Last year, this show was riddled with your questions and no doubt this year will be no different. I’ve also been seriously thinking about this one too and did it a couple of years ago, but I’ve decided to bring back The Country Fried Edition of The Rockin’ Pop Party later this year too! Many of my listeners have found an all country rendition of The Rockin’ Pop Party their favorite!

Enough about the future upcoming shows though. The mid-season premiere of The Rockin’ Pop Party will be of course my “Best of” show. What were some of your favorite songs of 2016? What do I have in store for the first “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” for 2017? What songs in the Year-End Hot 100 Billboards did I actually like in 2016? For that matter, were there any at all? All these questions and more will be answered on Saturday, January 14, 2017, exclusively on Sky 106, where you get variety out of the clear blue sky!
