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.
