I can't let this day go by without thanking everyone who has sacrificed so much, so this country can still be the best place on the planet ... Thank You, Thank You, Thank You !!
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, 30-second story behind each track. Because it plays to the 'Short Attention-Span Theater' we all have nowadays, 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: Panic - The Smiths
Tuesday: Blue Highway - Billy Idol
Wednesday: Twist in My Sobriety - Tanita Takarim
Thursday Hypnotize - System of a Down
Friday: No New Tale To Tell - Love & Rockets
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: White Room - Cream
Tuesday: Rock Lobster - B-52's
Wednesday: Still The Same - Bob Seger
Thursday Jesus Christ Superstar - Murray Head
Friday: Bargain - The Who
