The Rockin’ Pop Party with Geno J is LIVE inside The Retro Arcade!

Join Geno J as he presents both The Rockin’ Pop Party and The Retro Arcade on Magic 109, tomorrow (Friday, July 3rd, 2020) starting at 3 pm Eastern! You’ll get everything you know and love in both shows including your “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison”, “The Rockin’ Hour in History” your “Weekly Birthday #ShoutOut’s” in The Rockin’ Pop Party, and “The RetroSpective” during The Retro Arcade! All this and so much more too!

It’s another ‘jam-packed’ episode of The Rockin’ Pop Party folks! Geno J will have you wondering how he managed to squeeze so much content in a single show! You’ll find out who won the “Between the Sheets: Cover Comparison” for last week. Was it Bruno Mars or Peirce the Veil? You’ll also hear this week’s contenders too! This time, John Waite takes on Brooks & Dunn with another ’80s track! In “The Rockin’ Hour in History” you’ll have to ‘Guess the Year’ chosen by Alternative Ash! Guess it correctly, and you can pick the featured year for “The Rockin’ Hour in History” for next month! That’s not all though, Geno J will also reveal some of the birthdays that occurred this past week, take your requests, and have plenty of friendly banter as well.

Normally, that would be it! But, because Geno J will be filling in for Z-Man this week, you’ll get three more hours of Geno J, this time inside The Retro Arcade! He won’t have too many ‘Back in My Day’ stories, but he will have an extended “RetroSpective” for you! Geno J dug deep in his music library to find all the ‘Answer’ songs he could find and this week you’ll get the original song, plus it’s ‘Answer’ song that followed it. This of course is not all though. He’ll feature some sensational ’70s, epic ’80s, naughty ’90s, and any other decade that he can squeeze in before the turn of the century! All this and more is headed your way on this week’s episode of The Retro Arcade!

So? You’ve all been put on notice! If the music doesn’t drive you crazy, Geno J will by the end of the six straight hours that he’ll be LIVE!
