I always learn so much about the artists featured on Boppin' With Beth and this week is no exception! The late American singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg is this week's "Focus Beam" artist. Beth Riley tells about his life and music as well as a couple of boppin' tunes from his discography. There's some great tracks from some of his influences including Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Gene Clark with The Gosdin Brothers, Neil Young, StephenStills, The Beatles, Chris Hillman (and a super cool radio liner from him for Beth too) and Richie Furay (along with another great radio liner). I've got a rockin' song from The Rockin' R's in Rockabilly Rewind and there's tunes from The Flying Burrito Brothers, Mitch Mann and James LeBlanc!
