Host profile: Kevin Brewer
On " Shake Some Action with Kevin Brewer " we play rock ' n roll , pop , r + b , psychedelia , surf , folk-rock , and blues , from the late 50's to the 90's , primarily , though we insist that , in theory at least , you might hear us playing any type music from any era. Some of our shows are done in tribute to vintage radio formats , such as AM Top-40 and the early days of FM ' progressive rock " , complete with the occasional jingle , commercial , or concert spot from the era. Various anniversaries from the music world , world events , the time of year , holidays and the mood of the day are some of the elements we consider in preparing our broadcasts .
" Oldies radio " with a hip twist is an apt description of what we do. When we play music from major artists , we often feature their less familiar material---say , the " live b-side that was only released on a Norwegian single " ---instead of their more commonly heard recordings. And " one-hit wonders " get their due , also . Putting a smile on someone's face as they think " oh ! I like this song---I haven't heard this in FOREVER " is our goal !
