Oldies music magazine launched for over-50s baby boomers

July 9, 2011

Titled SH-BOOM! after the 1950s doo-wop hit, the new oldies magazine is FREE and will focus on music and stars from the Fifties to the Eighties.

You’re reading the Sh-Boom! blog, but a sample of the new magazine can be read at

As well as being the UK’s first-ever music magazine created for lovers of Fifties, Sixties, Seventies and Eighties music, SH-BOOM! is also different because it’s an interactive digital magazine.

It looks like a printed magazine but it is read on your computer.

As an interactive magazine, SH-BOOM! aims to help readers keep up to date with their favourite artists in a fun and involving way. Stories are brought to life by animation, music videos, music tracks and video interviews.

The London-based publisher, Sh-Boom Media Limited, decided to launch the magazine in a digital format because of baby boomers’ increasing appetite for the internet, and their growing interest in digital reading.

SH-BOOM! is completely FREE.

Oldies music fans simply have to register at the digital magazine’s website ( in order to receive free copies by email.

Readers can also join a free online music community for lovers of the music and artists of the late-1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
