back in the swing of things

i promised a fuller re-launch this month and technically i’m sticking to that promise. i’m still ironing out some different ideas for what and how to post to make pop that rocks really… well, pop. but in the meantime, you may have noticed that i’ve posted a little poll for all to see. with summer fading fast from minds and weather, i thought it fitting to reminisce on which songs released during it really summed up or brightened our off seasons. take a look at the options and vote for your favorite. if you select “other,” please state your choice in the comments below. enjoy.

in other news…

my radio show has moved to a new night! from now on, pop that rocks is taking over the circuit on y-rock on xpn. i’ll be specializing in alternative dance, remixes, mash-ups, and a little of my good ole’ fashioned bloggy goodness for consistency’s sake. it will air from ten to midnight every tuesday night and re-air at the same time every saturday night. this week’s show featured new music from fever ray, HEALTH, memory tapes, and more.
