Hi there! You found where to learn and listen to The Rockin’ Pop Party, brought to you in part by Mixcloud. Unfortunately, you can’t catch the show live anymore, but you may see some surprise episodes every now and then available to listen to here on my website.

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 it’s doors. It’s now on Magic 109. Needless to say, the show continues and has always been available on Mixcloud though.

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 is primarily 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 makes the show even better!

The show has two segments. The first of which, “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” is where you the listeners decide whether or not an original track or it’s 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 top of the second hour or one hour into the show.

The other segment, known as “The Rockin’ Hour in History”, 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 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. 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. 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!

If you have any issues with the embedded players, feel free to get in touch and I’ll do my best to get back to you as quickly as I can. Otherwise, enjoy and hope you come back often to see any new episodes!

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!
