Ljupčo Jolevski

Ljupcho Jolevski (mini tour on his own four decades of living)

He was born in an Indian summer in the far…they wrote: 29 September 1958. To good health! He grew up in the wilderness of Debarca – Ohrid with the sun in his heart and dreamt of amusing the others. Instead if continuing the family tradition and becoming an immigrant worker, his father left him to manage himself on the dusty asphalt of the semi-urban Skopje. He learnt the lessons of life without a break. The time of brotherhood and childhood gave him the possibility to spend time with the vinyls of Zeppelin, Bowie, Morrison and the Doors. And instead of continuing to play, he started writing. First in “Mlad Borec” – the journalistic school of life. Once and for good. He passed the path from bringing burek as an assistant, through the stew in “Pivnica” as a journalist and he got lucky when he became the editor of the cultural part in the time of the “spring of Macedonian journalism” and the breaking down of the false peace in the soc-realistic environment. And he wrote first about everything, to start biting on what his rock-and-roll generation was doing (Arhangel, Mizar, Padot na Vizantija…) and fight that the spot light also shine above their heads. Temporarily he was hanging around in TV (Videometronom show and the Sunday Program), to get down and get infected with the Radio. Once and… forever with the magic. As of 1995 he was the helmsman of Channel 103. At the same time, with Oliver Belopeta worked on the musical page (for quite some years) of the Saturday edition of “Nova Makedonija”. The experience that money does not pay. Ups, don’t let me forget that he has cooperated with Ekran, Detska Radost, then almost with all youth newspapers in former Yugoslavia, Rok, Vreme – zabave, Makedonsko vreme, Grad… Start, Blesok, BalCanis, Antena (Dnevnik)...
