Quality Pop

Quality Pop – darunter verstehen wir in der heutigen Sendung Künstlerinnen und Künstler, die sich im Zeitalter von Mikrotrends wenig um aktuelle Strömungen kümmern; furchtlose Haudegen, die ihre zeitlosen Platten nach konsequent eigener Maßgabe produzieren. Diese Spezies zeichnet sich durch unbestechliches Kennertum aus. Zu ihr zählen Teenage Fanclub, Ryley Walker und Wilco, aber auch weniger bekannte Exemplare.
