Of her next broadcast (Sunday, November 15), DJ Darla Bea says:
“Pop goes the World tonight from 8-10pm on Santa Barbara’s School of Rock, as I’ll be sharing a two-hour lesson on Global Pop Music.
Listen up to hear: the girl groups of France’s 60’s pop sound, ‘Yé-yé,’ named after the Yeah Yeah’s sung in Beat Music; a stylish new genre that echoed the bossa nova beat called Shibuya-kei, which emerged from Tokyo’s fashion district; Brazil’s ‘New Trend,’ which borrowed themes from jazz; and the music of Esquivel, Mexico’s ‘Busby Berkeley of Cocktail Music,’ who took over Hollywood in the 1950s-60s!
Get yourself ready to POP out with me, DJ Darla Bea!”
“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the fall from 8-10pm PST.
