Paul Stanley From the 1996 KISS Alive/Worldwide Tour



I found this lost classic from Paul Stanley of KISS. It’s from 1996. The year KISS kicked of a 16-month reunion tour (Alive Worldwide) after a multi-year layoff. I was at News/Talk 760 WJR and I was always concerned that the Program Director wasn’t a big fan of my doing a rock and roll interview on a news talk radio station. This massive KISS world tour kicked-off in Detroit at Tiger stadium in front of over 50,000 fans. The concert sold out in 40 minutes! The tour banked 148 million dollars. Enjoy!

What is New Wave or Punk Music? Circa 1980

Andy Summers-Ken Calvert-Stewart Copeland 1981

I think I’ve shared the fact that I have come upon a treasure trove of old recordings. Some are too damaged to restore, and I can’t tell you how sad that makes me. I’ve become obsessed with downloading and restoring old cassettes and DATs. I came across this blast from the past. In 1980 I was asked by my Program Director to do a special on “New Wave” or as most of us called it “Punk Rock.” Luckily, this cassette containing my one-hour special from 1980 was decent enough to share. Imagine that there was a time when the Police were considered “New Wave.” Have a listen and give me your thoughts. Enjoy! ©Ken Calvert (Follow me on twitter @calvertwcsx)

“There’s a New Kid In Town. Everybody’s Talking”

The Eagles were in Detroit Friday night at the new Little Caesars Arena.  Based on every report and review it was “spectacular.” I came across an interview I did with Don Henley back in 2004. Have a listen. Enjoy!
