So Old It’s New

(B&W photo of Karlo Berkovich)This is Bald Boy. I host a classic rock album cuts show — So Old It’s New. 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 currently airs on CKMS-FM on Mondays from 8:00pm to 10:00pm.

So Old It’s New #2

On Saturdays from 8:00am to 10:00am 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…

About Those Sugar Devils…..
Irene Torres & The SugarDevils came onto the Toronto music scene in 2011 and made a name for themselves interpreting the music of New Orleans. They wowed audiences with their versatility in playing blues, funk, r&b, jazz, latin & soul to name a few.
In 2012 they recorded their first self-titled CD in the cities of Toronto and New Orleans and received rave reviews.
Description

A Canadian band with a foot in both the vintage and the modern making for a foundation that is fresh and unique. Their love of r&b, soul, funk, blues, motown, and reggae shine through in their original music with high energy and passion. Vivid drums, funky bass, wailing guitar, inspired sax, ethereal organ, catchy hooks, and soaring vocals make this band a must listen for music lovers!

I met Drew Austin from Irene Torres and The Sugar Devils when he came to into Far Out Flicks to put up a poster! And one thing to led to another … what a band this is! – Coral FM.
