Joe Vig’s Pop Explosion

Wednesday 1PM-3PM

Joe Vig Pop Explosion explores the essence of pop music with classic recordings, demos and original songwriter renditions of classics (e.g., Jackie DeShannon’s original “Bette Davis Eyes,” a bit bawdy with pure country and western vs. Kim Carnes techno-pop #1 smash,) interviews with major recording artists from David Clayton Thomas of Blood Sweat and Tears, Aretha Franklin drummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Jim Peterik of The Ides of March and Peppy Castro of The Blues Magoos to film stars like Jodie Foster. In between the host gives pop history, reads from his reviews of artists from across the spectrum with a heavy emphasis on regional music.
