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 !!

                                                                                                                                 Beginning on March 4th !!
B-Side Trax:

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
Tuesday:                On a Plain – Nirvana
Wednesday:          Light Up – Styx
Thursday               White Bird – It’s a Beautiful Day
Friday:                   Still They Ride – Journey

B-Well,

Mike
