I Love Cowbell!

August 3, 2020


Rock and Roll has a love affair with cowbell. And so do I.
If you're a regular listener to the show you know I have a thing for cowbell.
Each show I choose a Featured Artist Of The Day... and announce it by ringing my cowbell. 
Every-time there's cowbell is a song I try to point it out. And it is a lot.
And in almost all of the photos I post on social media, I try to strategically place my cowbell in view.
So first thing I did when my daughter created the new show logo? I cut it out and taped it o...

New Show Logo!

August 1, 2020


"Mom, I want a mouse."
"What? Why?" I ask my 12 year old.
"'Cause they're cute. And I can train it. And keep it in my room."
If my eyes rolled any harder they'd look like a slot machine.
"Well, you have to use your own money."
"O.K. I worked out a budget and the cage, bedding, water bottle, food and mouse will cost $58," she fires back with bright eyes and a huge grin.
Ugh.
"What can I do for $20?" tumbles out next. Which immediately leads to a second hard eye roll. My head's starting to hurt.
My min...

Kat's Kloset Klassic Vinyl

June 29, 2020


Been broadcasting from my daughter's closet for about four months now due to the COVID19 pandemic. All SiriusXM DJs are currently working from home. Yes, I miss broadcasting from our regular studio in the heart of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But I do love the 10 step "commute" to work now, and the freedom to wear anything. And I mean ANYTHING.
So, this weekend I channeled Hugh Hefner and went to work in cheetah print silk pajamas. 
Hey, we all have our ways of getting through this crazy tim...

Broadcasting From My Daughter's Closet

May 31, 2020


"Hey, it's Katherine Boyd broadcasting from my daughter's closet." 
Yes, it's true. No, it's not a gimmick. Really am broadcasting from my daughter's tiny bedroom closet.
In March, SiriusXM sent all its on air hosts laptops and mics so they could broadcast from home during the COVID19 pandemic. We each then had to create a "studio" space in our homes or apartments. It had to be a space that's quiet and insulated to limit echoes.
Some fellow SiriusXM hosts, like Howard Stern, built studios in th...

We Interrupt This Program...

May 12, 2020


Dear Listeners: I won't be rockin' with you for a few weeks because Classic Vinyl is TEMPORARILY changing to Eagles Radio May 2 & 3 and then to Rolling Stones Radio starting May 8th for a limited time.
It's to promote the new stations which SiriusXM just added to its streaming services.
Miss you & can't wait to rock again with you soon.
Rock on!
