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, August 2, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET Chicago, Sing A Mean Tune Kid . . . From Chicago III, typically amazing guitar, including wah wah, from the late Terry Kath but a song that displays all the assets of early, and best (to me) Chicago. Pink Floyd, The Great Gig In The Sky … Perfect example of the voice – in this … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, August 2, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET
So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 26, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET Murray McLauchlan, Hard Rock Town . . . It’s a deep cuts show but I deviate sometimes. This was a hit and appropriate to a set full of hard rock or at least up-tempo tracks. I also got into a ‘thing’ with song titles about, you’ll see it’s obvious, and couldn’t seem to stop for … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 26, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET
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
So Old It’s New set list for Monday, July 5, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET The J. Geils Band, Musta Got Lost (live, from Blow Your Face Out including Peter Wolf’s immortal intro rap) . . . 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. Some people like live albums, some don’t, I tend to prefer studio versions in most cases … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, June 21, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET
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, June 7, 2021 – on air 8-10 pm ET Atomic Rooster, Head In The Sky . . . Up tempo tune from the UK progressive rock band originally formed by  Crazy World Of Arthur Brown alumni Vincent Crane and Carl Palmer, the drummer who is not featured on this track from the third album, In Hearing Of Atomic Rooster. Palmer had departed by then … Continue reading So Old It’s New set list for Monday, June 7, 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
