B-Side Trax Classic Launches Monday March 4th !! FEB 5th 2019
Yep, it’s finally here ! B-Side Trax was originally conceived as a Classic Rock Program. But, for various logistical & strategic reasons, I released the Alternative version first. Now, almost four years after the Alternative show debuted, it is with great pleasure that I introduce “B-Side Classic”.
Same tried & true formula, different genre of Songs Unburnt. Mainly 70’s & 80’s centric, we’ll dip back into the 60’s to touch on some psychedelia AND lean into the 90’s to feature some of those great bands & stories too. I hope you enjoy the new format as much as I’ll enjoy bringing it to you !!
A new concept for radio: a 6-minute featurette that airs once a day, five days a week. Aside from 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 zero !!
Here’s what aired last week on B-Side Alternative and a link to a recent show:
Monday: All I Need is a Miracle – Mike & The Mechanics
Tuesday: Last Nite – The Strokes
Wednesday: Mercury Blues – David Lindley
Thursday Touch, Peel & Stand – Days of The New
Friday: Clint Eastwood – Gorillaz
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: Shot Down in Flames – AC/DC

Wednesday: Light Up – Styx
