The Go-Go's "Focus Beam" on Boppin' With Beth 05-27-22


American rock band The Go-Go's are the "focus beam" band on this week's Boppin' With Beth! Hear tunes from their awesome mix of influences including Suzi Quatro, The Beach Boys, Ramones, The Runaways, The B-52's and The Ronettes. I talk about their awesome story that bookends their beginning through their Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2021 and still going strong. There's a couple of rockers from their catalog on the show as well. Darren Michael Boyd is the guest on this week's Beth's Lightning Round including a rockin' song from him. Jammin' James Riley has an early Roy Orbison tune in Rockabilly Rewind and there's tracks from The Northwest and The Courettes as well!
