THE REAL KRAMER

Portrayed by Actor Michael Richards
on S  E  I  N  F  E  L  D
Exclusive on Interviewing the Legends
Kenny Kramer is the model for Cosmo Kramer, the unpredictable and affable bachelor who has trouble staying on his feet.
Prior to serving as Cosmo's model, Kenny had a long career as a stand-up comedian and was the manager of a British reggae band. During the disco years Kenny created an electronic jewelry item that sold so well that Kramer was able to live comfortably long after disco died.
For six years Larry David lived across the hall from Kenny. One day Jerry Seinfeld asked Larry for help creating a TV show. Jerry became famous, Larry became George and Kramer became Kramer.

For the past seventeen years, Kenny has been the host of Kramer's Reality Tour and Kramer's Reality Road Show. Here Kenny relies on his stand-up experience to entertain people from all over the world with the behind-the-scenes Seinfeld story. In New York the tour has a bus portion that goes to sites made famous on the show. Seinfeld even did an episode spoofing Kenny's tour when Cosmo Kramer started The Peterman's Reality Tour in "The Muffin Tops" episode.

In 2001 Kenny was the Libertarian Party's candidate for mayor of New York City. The last time Kenny ran for mayor he admits it was a publicity stunt but this time he said he's was in it to win it. His campaign slogan reflected that...KRAMER FOR MAYOR...THIS TIME I'M NOT KIDDING!!! Unfortunately, Kenny lost. He did however receive several thousand votes but he was relieved in that he was once again able to escape having to hold an actual job.
The Seinfeld Show, which airs nightly in ninety countries, continues to be one of the world's most popular sitcoms. As there are no new episodes being produced, Kenny's tours and stage shows provide Seinfans with the only new Seinfeld experience available. Even though the show has ended, Kenny has made it clear that he has no such intention. Kenny Kramer will continue to entertain and live his life. It's worked so far.


KRAMER'S
REALITY TOUR
Kenny has been the host of Kramer's Reality Tour and Kramer's Reality Road Show since 
Seinfeld was on the air. He tells behind-the-scene stories to his audience and gives a bus tour of sites made famous by the show.

'MAGNUM' ORIGINAL SINGER BOB CATLEY SPECIAL GUEST ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS JANUARY 14TH 7 PM PACIFIC/10 PM EASTERN-BBS RADIO 1

B O B   C A T L E Y
ORIGINAL SINGER
 with
BRITISH ROCK'S
M   A   G   N   U   M
TALKS NEW ALBUM
entitled
'THE SERPENT RINGS'
and TOUR
EXCLUSIVE!
Magnum guitarist Tony Clarkin is a man who seems to never stop working. He is responsible for writing all the material released by the band, and on top of that he produces their albums from the very first demo to the final mix. On their latest album The Serpent Rings, Clarkin and Magnum’s other original member, vocalist Bob Catley, prove all over again just how perfectly this established system works.

Magnum have recorded eleven new songs which feature all the traditional strengths of the British act and also live up to the band’s ambition to explore a more rock-oriented direction.
The new album was recorded by the Magnum line-up consisting of Clarkin, Catley, keyboardist Rick Benton and drummer Lee Morris, plus their latest addition, bassist Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69, Place Vendome, Unisonic, among others), who joined the fold to replace Al Barrow.
Magnum’s major European tour has been scheduled to start in March 2020, initially with a number of headlining shows, to be continued by a first-rate package together with Gotthard from Switzerland. This extremely successful collaboration first passed the litmus test a few years ago, and Clarkin, Catley & Co. are very enthusiastic: “Along with some classic numbers, we will also present four or five songs from The Serpent Rings,” the band promises, providing even more reasons for their fans to mark the dates in their calendars.

BRUCE SUDANO LEGENDARY SONGWRITER for DONNA SUMMER-DOLLY PARTON-MICHAEL JACKSON... SPECIAL GUEST ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS DEC 17TH 7PM PT/10PM ET BBS RADIO1

B  R  U  C  E
S  U  D  A  N  O
'LEGENDARY SONGWRITER'
member of ALIVE N KICKIN'
(1970 HIT SINGLE-TIGHTER,TIGHTER)
and R&B/DISCO group BROOKLYN DREAMS

MUSICAL PARTNER/COLLABORATOR 
with Late Wife 
D O N N A  S U M M E R
Exclusive Interview
Bruce Sudano has had his hand in some of the 20th century’s biggest hits, sung by mega talents from Michael and Jermaine Jackson to Dolly Parton and Donna Summer, his late wife. At this point, he could easily rest on his musical laurels. Instead, he recorded an album about life right here, right now, in this 21st Century World. And he filled it with hard questions, some well-aimed finger pointing and poignant observations about the human experience — for better and worse.


Sudano was 4 when he began making music, first on accordion, then on guitar and piano. He started getting paid for it at 12. By the time he was 20, he had a hit, “Ball of Fire,” co-written with his mentor, Tommy James (“Hanky Panky,” “Mony, Mony,” “I Think We’re Alone Now”), who recorded it with his band, the Shondells.

Sudano had co-founded the band Alive N Kickin’ in 1968; in 1970, James wrote and produced their top-10 hit, “Tighter, Tighter.” Five years after leaving that band, Sudano co-founded Brooklyn Dreams. That same year, 1977, he met Summer, who began writing with the band. They penned “Take It to the Zoo” for the Thank God It’s Friday film soundtrack, then the band appeared as the Planotones in the film, American Hot Wax. They hit No. 4 with Summer duetting on “Heaven Knows,” and in 1979, Summer and the band wrote the No. 1 pop and R&B hit “Bad Girls.” It became the title song to the most
popular album of her career.

In 1980, Sudano released his first solo album, which contained “Starting Over Again,” written with Summer about his parents’ divorce. Dolly Parton turned it into a No. 1 country hit. Fifteen years later, Reba McEntire took it to No. 19. In 1985, Sudano co-wrote the Grammy-nominated Michael and Jermaine Jackson duet, “Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming (Too Good to Be True).” After years spent managing Summer’s career, as well as playing and singing in her band, Sudano released another solo album, Rainy Day Soul. That 2004 release gave him three top 10 adult contemporary hits, and New Music Weekly’s Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year award. “It's Her Wedding Day,” a track from his third solo album, earned him the 2009 New Music Weekly Adult Contemporary Song of the Year award.
These days you can find him performing alongside an eclectic group of musicians. From the wildly successful band Johnnyswim to the iconic British band The Zombies, or jamming with young rockers Hollis Brown, Sudano is back on the road re-engaging with audiences.

DAVE PEGG LEGENDARY BASSIST W/JETHRO TULL & FAIRPORT CONVENTION SPECIAL GUEST ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS W/RAY SHASHO DEC 10TH 7PM PT/10PM ET BBS RADIO

D  A  V  E
P  E  G  G
JETHRO TULL &
FAIRPORT CONVENTION
LEGENDARY BASSIST
CELEBRATING '50' YEARS AS A  FAIRPORTER  
with WINTER TOUR & NEW ALBUM 
entitled
'SHUFFLE AND GO'

Dave Pegg joined Fairport Convention in 1969.
As a teenager, Dave became involved in Birmingham's vibrant 60s rock scene. He soon found himself playing guitar most evenings with one or other of the city's young bands. Later, Dave auditioned as a lead guitarist with The Uglys but was persuaded to swap to bass guitar and has played the instrument ever since.


After a spell with The Uglys, Dave joined the Ian Campbell Folk Group on double bass and met fiddle maestro Dave Swarbrick by whom he was introduced to Fairport Convention. He joined them and has been in the band ever since.
In 1980, he joined Jethro Tull as bass player and spent 15 years with the band. As if playing in two bands was not enough, he set up Woodworm Records to produce and market Fairport's albums. He also recorded a solo album.
Dave has also co-organized Fairport's Cropredy festival since the early 1980s. From small beginnings, it has grown into a major event that attracts 20,000 fans each August.



As well as recording and touring with Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull, Dave is much in demand as a session player and has contributed bass to innumerable recordings. He is also an accomplished mandolin player.


Purchase Off the Peg | bespoke memoirs of a bass player
The Autobiography by Dave Pegg & Nigel Schofield

at amazon.com
Dave Pegg (or Peggy as he is known to friends and fans worldwide) is almost as admired as a teller of tales as he is as a bass player: and as a bass player, he is held in awe by friends, fans and fellow musicians. For years people have been saying he should turn his tales into a permanent record. “Write a book, Peggy”, they yelled. Now (with a little help from his friend and Fairport biographer Nigel Schofield) he finally has. In his own words it’s all here: the thriving Brum music scene of the sixties; trad folk with The Campbells; Fairport, Tull, the Dylan Project; countless sessions; gigs from front rooms to the world’s most celebrated stages; running his own recording studio and record label; homes from Sutton to Little Hadham to rural Oxfordshire to even more rural Brittany; an annual gathering that began as a village fete, became a reunion and is now one of the world’s most respected festivals. There’s also friends and fellow musicians, including some of the biggest names in the music business (Off the Pegg features a detailed and complete index so you can find them easily!)
Limited vinyl LP pressing. Fairport Convention, the UK's most influential folk-rock band, celebrates it's 50th anniversary with 50:50@50. Half the fourteen tracks were recorded at recent concerts and half in the studio. With nine compositions by members of Fairport, the album presents a mix of brand new songs and favorites from Fairport's repertoire. Two tracks feature guest lead vocals: one from Robert Plant and one from Pentangle's Jacqui McShee.
