Oldest Artists Played on CFNY

Post by Eric Peebles » Thu Aug 11, 2005 12:39 pm



I was listening to Alan Cross' "History of New Music" the other day and he was talking the whole 'retro' music genre and how some artists are coming back to the music scene - i.e. The Cure, U2, Pixies, etc.

That got me thinking about 'old' artists who, at one time or another, were played on CFNY semi-regularly (either as part of group or as a single artist). Some, of course, are dead (marked with an "x"), but most are still around and kicking. Using the web, I came up with this list sorted by reverse age (I think you'll be surprised at who is oldest!!) ...


x - Dee Dee Ramone (The Ramones) September 18, 1952
Dave Stewart September 9, 1952
Joe Strummer (The Clash) August 21, 1952
Stewart Copeland (The Police) July 16, 1952
David Byrne March 14, 1952
Tommy Ramone (The Ramones) January 29, 1952
Sting October 2, 1951
Daniel Lanois September 19, 1951

x - Joey Ramone (The Ramones) May 19, 1951
Tom Robinson June 1, 1950
Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo) May 18, 1950
Peter Gabriel February 13, 1950
David Johansen (New York Dolls) January 9, 1950

Yeah, Martin's getting old.

But let's not forget Alan Cross - 1962.

And Bookie's gotta be up there too.

Did CFNY ever play any Sinatra? "New York New York"?

If so...

x - Frank Sinatra - December 12, 1915

And as for the DJs, Marsden must be in his 60's.
