Of the next “Rock It Properly” broadcast, Darla Bea writes: “Singer Eric Burdon, of the British Invasion group The Animals and the California funk band War, turned 73 on May 11th.

Now a Ventura-county resident, Burdon continues to perform publicly, and celebrated the occasion on Saturday night with a concert at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai. Time for our own birthday party on the Radio Airwaves, as we’ll be spinning two hours of British Bands and Funk Music in honor of this acclaimed musician.

All brought to you by Santa Barbara’s own School of Rock!

Join me, DJ Darla Bea, and get ready to Rock Out!”

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