Popcircle was a radio show which highlighted unconventional pop music. It used to play stuff that would rarely be played on the regular radio shows. Even though it would mostly play stuff from international artists, the local bands had always been the special stuff for the listeners.
Having said that, the monthly special edition, titled Popcircle Sessions, became the spotlight where the local acts would play their acoustic versions as well as their cover versions. Here are some selected tracks, documented from the shows in 2010 – 2011, presented as a mixtape for you to catch the (nostalgic) excitement.
