Alice Cooper is coming back to radio. As a longtime radio host, I’m happy to see that he’s back behind the mic, because the Coop was just a natural. The shock-rocker has announced that he’ll be hosting “Alice’s Attic,” a new, syndicated radio show.

Cooper was last in charge of the dials with his long-running syndicated radio show, “Nights with Alice Cooper.” The show ended last year after being on the air for a whopping two decades. What’s more, the new show features the same creative forces behind “Nights with Alice Cooper.” So, it’s totally full-circle.

“Alice’s Attic” will air for five hours Monday through Thursday, plus have weekend blocks, via Cooper’s new syndication partner, Superadio.

Cooper, of course, is extremely excited to be back. For those who missed his old show, it sounds like the new one will pick up right where “Nights with Alice Cooper” left off.

“To all of my insane radio minions, I’m back,” Cooper said in a press release. “And if you thought 20 years of ‘Nights with Alice Cooper’ was weird, just wait until you get into ‘Alice’s Attic!’ Just think about who or what could be lurking in all these dusty old boxes. We’ve got the same team behind the new show and so you’ll find the show fairly familiar, but we’re all looking forward to getting a little more creative with introducing new elements to keep things from getting stale…”

Listeners won’t have to wait for the new show, either, since local radio stations in the US and Australia will start airing the show starting Monday (Feb. 5). In addition to the US and Australia, the show will also air soon in Canada and the UK, according to a release.

As for what to expect, just like with his old show, the new show will feature a blend of music and talk. Expect “curated mix of classic and some obscure rock, with an occasional ‘future classic’ song, plus Cooper’s stories and commentary about the music and artists he features.”

What was always extra special about Cooper’s radio shows is that he really knows all the guys he’s spinning, and he has stories about all of them. I always enjoyed hearing his behind-the-scenes tales of being on the road with the rock stars of yesterday.

Not that Cooper is stuck in the past. He still tours constantly. In fact, he recently announced a co-headlining US tour with Rob Zombie, which will begin August. It’s an additional leg of their “Freaks on Parade Tour,” which took place last summer and fall with the same lineup of Zombie, Cooper, as well as Ministry and Filter. Zombie is touring on his latest release, “The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy,” which dropped in 2021. Meanwhile, Alice Cooper is out to promote his latest solo album, 2023’s “Road,” which marked his 29th studio album.

Cooper also recently announced a 50th anniversary deluxe edition of his gamed 1973 album, “Billion Dollar Babies.” The expanded collection will be available on March 8 digitally and in three-LP and 2-CD physical formats.
