From Marty H – Mr. Pop History, I swear if you get this one, you are the best! For years, Rush Limbaugh has been using a piece of bumper music on his show. It’s very catchy, but it isn’t anything that was ever popular. I can identify every bit of music he uses on the show with this one exception. I’ve never heard him mention this piece of music – ever.
I know this is a long shot.

Mr. Pop History – For readers who don’t know, bumper music is the music bridging commercials to the next segment of a radio talk show. It’s the thing to do and Rush perfected the art. Now, to answer your question. I’m going to guess and this is a long shot indeed! I noticed over the years that Rush has played a tune, which absolutely bombed on the charts. I was given this copy by a radio station in 1981. It was one of those throwaway records stations get. I don’t listen to Rush a lot, but notice Rush is still playing the same tune, either with different artists or a different arrangement. But lets go back to this single. A group called the A’s released it in 1981 on the Arista label. The song is called “A Woman’s Got the Power.” Rush listeners should recognize this incredible piece of mystery bumper music. Rush Limbaugh played this version for years and years.

Question – When did John F. Kennedy Jr.’s “George” Magazine debut?

Mr. Pop History - Although it doesn’t seem like a long time ago, “George” magazine debuted in September of 1995. At the launching press conference – Kennedy, flanked by his partner Michael Berman, told reporters “Ultimately, this magazine is going to stand on its own and that will come a couple of issues down the line when my last name doesn’t matter.” The first issue had a 500,000 printing with 175 pages. Full of pop culture and politics, George Magazine folded in March 2001.
