BAM is Back (as a website)


September 6, 2011 by admin

BAM revamped as a website.

[BAM founder] Dennis Erokan, a Lafayette resident who has been running the public relations firm Placemaking Group for the last five years, started BAM magazine as a bi-weekly free publication back in 1975. Over the years, it became an entrenched part of the area music scene, especially once it started hosting the Bammy Awards in 1978. In the ’80s, BAM published editions in both Northern and Southern California, gaining a peak circulation of 130,000. BAM‘s fortunes dampened with the rise of the Internet, which forced Erokan to close shop in 1999.

    I got my first rejection slip from BAM magazine. Well, it was a rejection call, and I called them, since they weren’t calling me. But it was a rejection, nonetheless.

  2. They rejected everyone, Steve.
