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…
