Pop Does Not Mean Popular

Pop Does Not Mean Popular – so heißt eine Retrospektive des amerikanischen lo-fi Künstlers Hussalonia, die in der heutigen Golden Glades-Ausgabe eingehend vorgestellt wird. Der Titel ist zugleich so etwas wie das Grundprinzip dieser Sendung, die alle zwei Wochen aufs Neue erklärt, dass Popmusik nicht immer auch populäre Musik ist. So stehen auch heute wieder meisterhafte Popexperten auf dem Programm, die ihrer Entdeckung für den großen Markt harren – oder aber an dieser Entdeckung gar kein Interesse haben, darunter Stephen Steinbrink, Roar, Lowpines u.v.a.
