If it rocks AND your mom likes it, it’s probably power pop!
Power pop [ˈpau̇(-ə)r ˈpäp] is a popular musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop and rock music. It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices such as strong melodies, clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are usually kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed.
The credo of the Power Pop Show is simple: bring quality, modern & classic melodically-driven rock to people who enjoy music. Your host Jeff Shelton meets in the middle, where melody and rock peacefully co-exist.
