Meanwhile, I try to attend the Radio Summit every year, it never disappoints ! This year I added in the Musexpo which takes place a few days prior. They. Were. Both. Awesome ! The people, the panels, the showcases & the fellowship at both were simply outstanding. There were parts of each conference that really were important to the other. If you get the chance next year, I suggest you attend both.
And now, let the show go on ...
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: Say it Isn't So - The Outfield
Tuesday: Brain Stew/Jaded - Green Day
Wednesday: Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
Thursday Take it Off - The Donnas
Friday: Porcelain - Moby
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: Haitian Divorce - Steely Dan
Tuesday: Wildflower - The Cult
Wednesday: Fresh Garbage - Spirit
Thursday Metal Gods - Judas Priest
Friday: El Diablo - ZZ Top
