In addition, DJ Miguel Vargas and DJ Ren bring back the “Pocho” word of the week and drop two musical sets with the theme of Run & Pocho. Check it out ese.
Fun afternoon. Angie Pykonen sat in with me again this week.
We rocked some, laughed a little, paid tribute to Dave Ray (who passed away 9 years ago this week), played some blues (including a bluesy version of “Polk Salad Annie”), included a couple of Texas songwriters, threw a few classic British people in for good measure, stumbled over words (as is my way), shilled for the Mary Cutrufello performance at 331, danced to some rockabilly, and pretty much stuck to the Freewheelin’ script….oops, there isn’t one.
Think you may want to check out the list of songs? Just click “more” below and you’ll be transported to the playlist (and you may also link into the archive of the show, should you be bored and need some background music).

This week the Pop Shop celebrates Dick Clark, born Nov 30, 1929, in Mount Vernon, New York. We’ll explore his musical legacy, from American Bandstand to Soul Unlimited and Where the Action Is. Clark was a pioneer in bringing pop music to television in the 1950s, and has built a media empire over the years that includes game shows (10,000 Pyramid) and other variety programs, as well as restaurants and theaters. To date, no one has figured out the secret to Clark’s ever-youthful appearance, although the Simpsons speculate that he’s really a robot.
