Of her next broadcast, DJ Darla Bea writes: “‘He was the Champion and he did Rock us!’

Join me tonight for a Royal Birthday Tribute to Freddie Mercury, the flamboyant lead singer of Queen and showman extraordinaire – who would have turned 66 on September 5th.

Learn about his childhood in India, 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.
