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 set list for Monday, July 19, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET Chris Isaak, Let’s Have A Party . . . Isaak became well known via his big hit Wicked Game, which to me remains his best song and, released in 1989, is now more than 30 years old! But Isaak’s other material is top-notch; I’m not a major fan but I do like this rocker and … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 19, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET
So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 12, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET J.J. Cale, Rock And Roll Records . . . As some of the comments in the YouTube clip of this song suggest, only thing wrong with J.J. Cale’s music is that most of his songs are too/so short. Like this one, at just two minutes, five seconds to kick us off. Aerosmith, Lightning Strikes . … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 12, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET

The studio version was a No. 12 single in 1975 and arguably the band’s best-known song before the mass commercial success of the Freeze Frame album in 1981. But this live version is … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 5, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET
So Old It’s New all-Canadian set list, in advance of Canada Day, for Monday, June 28/21. On air 8-10 pm ET Teenage Head, Disgusteen . . . I’ve played it long ago, just love it and a perfect opener with the “Nice day for a party, isn’t it?’ line to kick off the song. Plus, of course, the Exorcist takeoff later on. I saw the original band at a college concert way back when. Rush, Here … Continue reading So Old It’s New all-Canadian set list, in advance of Canada Day, for Monday, June 28/21. On air 8-10 pm ET

All selections are from live albums, something I did eons ago on the show and figured would be fun to reprise.

So Old It’s New set list for Monday, June 14, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET The Rolling Stones, Oh No Not You Again . . . Oh yes, I’m back with another show, with this opening rocker from the most recent studio album of original material by the Stones, A Bigger Bang in 2005. Originally, there was talk of this being the title of the album. I think they should … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, June 14, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET

So Old It’s New set list for Monday, May 31, 2021 – airing 8-10 pm ET Fleetwood Mac, These Strange Times . . . Appropriate song title for these times we’re living in but aside from that an interesting spoken word track – with Mick Fleetwood handling lead vocals – from the Mac’s 1995 album, Time. The album, without Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, bombed commercially and I confess I don’t … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, May 31, 2021 – airing 8-10 pm ET
So Old It’s New set list for Monday, May 24, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET The Kinks, Victoria . . . I don’t tend to do ‘just what they’d be expecting’ but in this case, here’s the obvious opener for today, Victoria Day. A well-known Kinks’ track from the Arthur (Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire) album. Like so much of their great output from ‘concept’ albums … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, May 24, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET
So Old It’s New set list for Monday, May 17, 2021. On air 8-10 pm ET The Beatles, Good Morning Good Morning . . . It’s arguably difficult to find a Beatles’ deep cut, since almost everything they produced is so well known, like this one, one of my favorites from the Sgt. Pepper album. Just love everything about it, the lyrics, the tune, the playing. Someone on You Tube commented … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, May 17, 2021. On air 8-10 pm ET

  1. Just reading through your setlist, noticed Bobby Gentry, I’m always trying to make connections…in this case she was married to Jim Stafford, actually has a child with him, I am playing “Spiders and Snakes” on my show tonight…thought that was a cool connection

    1. I played Spiders and Snakes during a fun ‘hits you haven’t heard in ages’ type show I did a few months ago, ’70s AM Radio hits I did for fun after previously playing Reunion’s Life Is A Rock (And The Radio Rolled Me) to great reaction. So I did a full show of stuff like that, The Night Chicago Died, etc. etc. I caught a tiny bit of your show last week. Some fun chats you guys have. Take care.

  2. Hey Dude,

    Our show (Father To Son) Replay is every other Monday from 10 – 11 PM, I picked this slot because I wanted to follow your show which is a great show!

    Just thought I’d let you know, maybe you will tune in some time

    Cheers,

    Gary & Ben – Father To Son

    1. Wow, thanks so much! I just noticed your show in the system last night while I was loading some tunes. I’ll definitely check your show out and, whenever studio is back open, if you guys are in, no doubt we’ll run into each other as shows transition. Take care and best wishes; I’ll definitely tune in to hear what you guys are doing. Take care.
