Yes !! I made it to MuseExpo and it is even better than I had hoped. Everyone here has such a great sense of camaraderie it's contagious ! I came here mostly for the Worldwide Radio Summit later in the week, but I thought " what the heck ", why not learn something new ? As hard as it is to believe, I'm doing just that. If you ever get the chance, I suggest you do the same.
Stop me & say hi,
A new concept for radio: a 6-minute featurette that airs once a day, five days a week. Besides digging up songs unburnt, there's also a fascinating story behind each track. The tune-out factor is next to zero !!
Here's what aired last week on B-Side Alternative and a link to a recent show:
Monday: You & Me The Bottle Makes 3 - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Tuesday: Texarkana - R.E.M.
Wednesday: Angry Chair - Alice in Chains
Thursday Little Miss Can't Be Wrong - Spin Doctors
Friday: Just Can't Get Enough - Depeche Mode
Many stations use this vignette as a lead-in or the centerpiece for their retro or flashback shows. Some use it as a stand-alone or even combine each week's shows to form a 30-minute weekend retro feature. That flexibility is a benefit for individual stations to use to their advantage.
Here's a week on B-Side Classic Rock, plus a show link:
Monday: Damage is Done - Foreigner
Tuesday: The Window - Steve Miller Band
Wednesday: Something in The Air - Thunderclap Newman
Thursday Rock Show - Blink 182
Friday: Too Rolling Stoned - Robin Trower
