Since September of 2015, Geno J has been presenting a special ‘Under the Covers’ edition of The Rockin’ Pop Party that has become a fan favorite. This special episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party is coming your way this Friday, for the first time here on Magic 109!
For those that have never heard this special annual episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party, it consists of only covers of some of your favorite original tracks. Now, as most of you know, the two segments of The Rockin’ Pop Party, the “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” and “The Rockin’ Hour in History” are two highlighted features that most everyone enjoys. Well, the ‘Under the Covers’ edition of The Rockin’ Pop Party sorta combines these two features by playing only covers released after 1980, but the original tracks themselves came out before 1980. So, in essence, it’s all your favorite original titles you’d hear in “The Rockin’ Hour in History” by some of today’s artists. With that said, it’s why this special episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party doesn’t feature either of these segments and takes the best qualities of the two segments and makes it better or worse in some cases.
This year, you’ll hear some familiar tracks heard on previous years, but you will hear some new ones as well, or at least new in the sense that they haven’t been featured before in previous years of this annual episode. You can anticipate some Train, Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, Amy Lee and many more! If you’ve got a suggestion for a track that should be featured and the original came out before 1980 and the artist covering it released it after 1980, feel free to request it and Geno J will be sure it gets played!
Over all, it’s one episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party worth listening to, especially if you’ve never heard it before! So, be sure to check out the ‘Under the Covers’ edition of The Rockin’ Pop Party this Friday (September 21st, 2018) at 3 pm Eastern, here on Magic 109, the only station breaking the radio dial and now your Alexa/Amazon enabled smart speaker or device!
