So Old It’s New

This is Bald Boy. I host a classic rock album cuts show — So Old It’s New — on 102.7 Sound FM Radio, airing 8-10 pm Mondays. The show’s premise: Old bands, old tracks, old bands, their new tracks if they’re still releasing music. Mostly 1960s and 70s stuff, the era in which I grew up. But I’ll go with 80s, 90s, 2000s as well – Guns ‘N Roses, The Cult, Wolfmother, REM, you name it.  Prog and (70s) punk, too. Or whatever else strikes my fancy.

And I’ll play the occasional single you likely have not heard on commercial rock radio in many a moon, which is what prompted this show – my frustration with commercial rock radio not going beyond the same repetitive fare from the Stones, Zep, Purple and the like.

So with me, you’ll get the Stones’ Fingerprint File, not Start Me Up. You’ll get Zep’s Achilles Last Stand, not Stairway To Heaven.  I publish all my set lists here and also on Facebook (search for Bald Boy) and Twitter (Karlo Berkovich), including song clips.

So Old It’s New #2

On Saturdays from 7:00am to 9:00am Bald Boy plays the music that didn’t fit in the Monday timeslot! Full album plays, metal and hard rock, or going full bore with a reggae show, or a punk rock/new wave show…

So Old It’s New

Classic rock album tracks (mostly 60s and 70s stuff-Beatles, Stones, Tull, Purple, Who, Zep, Cream, Pink Floyd, etc. etc.). Show theme: Old bands, old tracks, old bands, new tracks if they’re still releasing music. If you want to hear, say, Jumping Jack Flash by the Stones, you won’t. But if you want to hear something like Jigsaw Puzzle or Shine a Light by the Stones, this is the place to be. That’s what got me doing the show in the first place – my annoyance with hearing the same (albeit great) old tracks by these bands on commercial rock radio playlists when there is so much more to their respective catalogues. So I dig deeper into the grooves of the albums those of us who grew up on 60s and 70s rock grew up on. I throw in some blues on occasion and late 70s early 80s punk/new wave (early Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, Graham Parker, Clash (generally London Calling to Combat Rock period), heck, Flash and the Pan, etc.). And I’m not averse to throwing in heavier fare like AC/DC, Judas Priest etc. But the foundation of the show is the blues-based rock of the 60s and 70s.
