Cyprus Avenue rings in the holidays, as Bill Shapiro brings you his annual “The Sounds of Christmas” show.

Doc Pomus ~ Redux

Oct 12, 2013

On this edition of Cyprus Avenue, we take a journey through decades of popular songs by well-known artists and with something in common:  they were either written or co-written by Doc Pomus.

Elvis at Stax

Oct 5, 2013

This week, Bill Shapiro brings you music from Elvis Presley’s Memphis studio sessions of the early ‘70s – released recently in the extensive “Elvis at Stax” compilation.  


Thank you for supporting KCUR and Cyprus Avenue!  For this year's Fall Membership Drive, Bill Shapiro presented a special, two-hour rock 'n roll party. 


As we get closer to the 35th Anniversary of Cyprus Avenue, we revisit the first-ever musical concept featured on the show:  Ballads by Rockers.
