Of her next “Rock It Properly” broadcast (Sunday, September 6th, at 8pm), DJ Darla Bea writes: “MERCURY RISING!!

Tune in tonight for a two-hour musical trip to Wembley Stadium to hear Queen, the best of the LIVE AID world-wide concert, Freddie Mercury solo tracks, covers, parodies, and glam rock at its finest.

Join me, DJ Darla Bea, for a Royal Birthday Tribute to Freddie Mercury, the flamboyant lead singer of Queen and showman extraordinaire – who would have turned 69 years old yesterday.

Learn about his childhood in India; his obsession with Jimi Hendrix; why he named his band Queen; fans’ reaction to him growing a mustache; the concert for Live Aid; and how his legendary voice and stage-presence has influenced countless singers and bands.

Featuring: Covers, Live Tracks, Rare Recordings, Bootlegs, Parodies, and more!

Rock out and Listen up for Mercurial Trivia from Santa Barbara’s very own School of Rock!”

“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the summer from 8-10pm.
