Dr PopaLotaCorn is back this summer, and with the Earth heating up in more ways than one, he's phoning it in from a frigid beach on Neptune, working against the clock to collate and archive a history of Earth's unpopular music.  Bollywood disco, female-led post-punk groups of the 80s, and Christmas-themed hip-hop jams will all make their way to your airwaves this December and January before humanity spirals into its final and inevitable orgy of total self-annihilation in the month of...
