Of her next broadcast (Sunday, May 24), DJ Darla Bea writes:

“On tonight’s ‘Rock It Properly,’ we’ll travel to jolly old England, and get down with the 24 Hour Party People of Manchester — aka Madchester. Take a musical trip with me and learn about Morrissey, The Smiths, and the pop-music scene of this northern UK city.

We’ll also raise a toast to salute the 56th birthday of the earnest icon of melancholia and style: Steven Patrick Morrissey!

Also featuring: The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, The Charlatans, James, Freddie and the Dreamers, Herman’s Hermits, The Hollies, Joy Division, 10cc, Oasis, The Chemical Brothers, and The Buzzcocks. Covers, tributes, remixes and more!

Class is in session with Santa Barbara’s School of Rock! Get ready to rock out!”

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