It will be the Top of the Pops tonight as “Rock It Properly” takes a musical journey from the British Invasion of the 1960s (The Who and The Kinks), to the emergence of Power Pop via early-1970s (Big Star and others), to the later Punk and New Wave era of the late 1970s (The Cars and Elvis Costello), and beyond.

Darlapedia says, “‘Power pop is a popular musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop and rock music. It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices such as strong melodies, clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs.’

Get ready to join me, DJ Darla Bea, for a rock’n’roll lesson on your community-radio airwaves… and get ready to Rock Out tonight!”

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