KENNY KRAMER THE ORIGINAL SEINFELD KRAMER SPECIAL GUEST ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS W/RAY SHASHO -BBS RADIO

Larry David's neighbor across the hall
and model for Cosmo Kramer

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 FRONTMAN BOB CATLEY CHATS ABOUT 'THE SERPENT RINGS' AND LENGTHY TOUR ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS W/RAY SHASHO BBS RADIO

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.

WHERE HAVE ALL THE ROCK STARS GONE?
Rock and Roll, the Blues, and Jazz are America's contribution to the arts, so why are we not fighting to preserve our own musical legacy and culture?
Rooted from the early blues pioneers, the longevity of rock and roll is second to none. But strangely enough those legendary rock heroes that we were so accustomed to hearing every time we turned on our radios had mysteriously vanished from the mainstream. The music of the 1960's, 70's and even the 80's was an important juncture in all of our lives. So many of us timeline life's precious moments with the music we remember, when the music was so great, when the music mattered. The baby-boomer generation is financially imperative yet many of its entertainment standards have been renounced.
One day, the plug was pulled on those legendary music artists. Hackers began stealing music across the internet. Online music stores popularized cheap digital singles and neglected to promote full-length albums. Radio stations changed formats to accommodate talk show radio jocks while rappers and electronic dance music menaced the airwaves. Notorious record companies began folding in droves. Record companies and radio stations that were once owned and operated by visionaries were now run by accountants and lawyers and the music world began promoting untalented wannabes. The economy plummeted, and radio stations became more concerned about how many consecutive commercials they could run instead of providing quality radio programming and entertainment value. Radio stations became corporate machines leaving no room for innovation. Throughout the 2000s, recording studios and live performances began using an audio processor called "Auto-Tune" to disguise off-key inaccuracies in vocal tracks. The device allowed virtually anyone without music skills to become a singer and new waves of mainstream radio stars were instantly fabricated. The business of music became stronger and more important than the art of music.
For more than a decade, I've been on a rock and roll pilgrimage to help promote and save the greatest music the world has ever known. Before the internet and Napster, virtuoso musicians traditionally introduced their music by way of mainstream radio stations while anxious music enthusiasts hurried to their favorite record stores and purchased a copy of the artist's latest release. Talk radio wasn't popular because there was way too much great music to play over the airwaves. Advertisers didn't rule the airwaves, the music did. Rock legends toured the world to promote their latest albums and prices of concert tickets were extremely affordable. Proficient musicians, singers, and songwriters are what made the music so great.

BRUCE SUDANO LEGENDARY SONGWRITER AND MUSIC PARTNER TO LATE WIFE DONNA SUMMER:EXCLUSIVE ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS -BBS RADIO

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.
