Popular Music: The Podcast

Nov 4, 2019

November is associated with a lot of NO’s - from no shave to no...other things. So we’re here to say YES and give you NEW WAVE NOVEMBER. Popettes, we’re kicking off this glorious chapter with quite possibly the most ICONIC of ALL New Wave hits - Blondie’s “Call Me.” We’ll get the conversation started as we try to even attempt to DEFINE what the hell NEW WAVE EVEN IS, while Omar will give you a little background about this incredible band and how it was formed and Analise tells you why this chord progression is so balls to the wall badASS.
