To Everything There Is A Season

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Sunday, September 15, 2019, In : SiriusXM 


September in Cleveland is heavenly.
Daytime temps in the 70s. At night it dips into the 60s.
Sunshine is abundant. Monarch butterflies decorate the breezes as they migrate south from Canada to Mexico.

September skies are spectacular. Clear & blue one day. Cloudy & brooding the next.
The brooding skies make for great photos. 
When I left the Rock Hall tonight after a great day of playing classic rock on SiriusXM Classic Vinyl, the sky's beauty made me stop, look & listen.
The season is changing.

50th Anniversary of Woodstock

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Monday, August 26, 2019, In : SiriusXM 


Woodstock was a pivotal weekend in rock & roll history.
A half-million people converged on Yasgur's Farm in tiny Bethel, NY, for a weekend of Peace, Love and Music. Most of them were teenagers, or barely in their 20s.
Despite a ton of rain, lack of food, and not enough bathrooms, the miracle of Woodstock is that it all stayed amazingly calm.
Instead of anger & violence, there was peace & love.
And music of course! World-changing music. 
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, all weekend l...

No More Mrs. Nice Guy

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Monday, August 26, 2019, In : SiriusXM 


Alice Cooper changed the world of rock and roll. 
When he came on the scene in the '60s, he was scary! Smeared black eye make-up. Sinister grin. Rumors he killed a chicken live on stage!
He was evil incarnate.
Or so he lead the public to believe.
In reality, he's a down to earth kid from Detroit who was propelled to rock stardom with catchy tunes, hard work and a really creative manager.
And he's one of the nicest rock stars I've ever met.
So when the Rock Hall decided to hold an Alice Cooper Fan A...

A Whiter Shade Of Pale

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, In : SiriusXM 


Every time I walk into work at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I am filled with awe.
This building, and playing the music it celebrates, gives me so much joy.
Sure as hell didn't earn this blessing, but I savor every single moment.
Thanks so much for rockin' with me on SiriusXM Classic Vinyl each weekend. 
Rock on!

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Sunday, March 24, 2019, In : SiriusXM 


It's been two years. TWO YEARS! Since I joined SiriusXM Classic Vinyl as weekend host.
How's that possible?
And I've loved & cherished every single day with you.
Thanks for putting up with me and my growing pains.
Leaving hard news journalism after 20+ years to become a classic rock DJ was a big switch.
In just a few months I went from reporting on the 2016 Presidential Election for NPR to hosting a classic rock show.
From full-on stress to full-on bliss.

Slowly I'm morphing from who I always thoug...

Off To Yale!

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Sunday, June 10, 2018, In : SiriusXM 


Gosh, I love to tell a good story.
Been working at it for 30+ years now. 
During that time I've worked with some of the best in the broadcasting biz.
And some of the worst. Ew.
Learned from them what to do, and what not to do.
My favorite mentors had a zeal for life. And a voracious need to keep learning. 
Me too. 
That's why I applied to Yale University's storyteller program "Thread at Yale."
And holy mackerel, they accepted me.
So, it's off to New Haven, Connecticut, to learn from some of the best s...

Rock Hall Induction 2018

Posted by Katherine Boyd on Saturday, March 10, 2018, In : SiriusXM 


Crazy that it's been a year now since I joined SiriusXM Classic Vinyl as weekend DJ.
It flew by!
The first few weeks I trained under the legendary DJ Dusty Street. Not only is she smart, witty and cool, she's really sweet too. A one of a kind lady. Still can't believe I work with her!

Every time I walk into work, at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a big ole grin spreads across my face & my heart fills with joy. "I work here!" I scream inside. "I work here!" 

The building is stunning and it's filled...
