Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of APR 9th: The “Add a Side of The B-Side” Contest Has Begun & Classic Rock is Coming …

As the old saying goes, “you’re either growing or you’re dying”.  Same goes for us in the music industry.  The Alternative show has been going great for years and the stories are a fascinating part that the listener probably didn’t know.  Now it’s time to bring different stories and different songs to a whole new audience.  Welcome B-Side Classic …

Also, be sure to contact any staff member via phone, email or social media for details on how to qualify your station for the “Add a Side of The B-Side” contest !

B-Side Trax:

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:

Stacy’s Mom – Fountains of Wayne / Click To Play Show

Monday:               Precious Declaration – Collective Soul
Tuesday:               Friends of P – The Rentals
Wednesday:         Stacy’s Mom – Fountains of Wayne
Thursday              My City Was Gone – The Pretenders
Friday:                 Mr. Cab Driver – Lenny Kravitz
  
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 link to a show:

Suavecito – Malo / Click To Play Show

Monday:                Seagull – Bad Company
Tuesday:                In-Between Days – The Cure

Episodes – B-Side Trax Week of MAR 5th: 4 Days & 3 Unforgettable Nights in Vegas, PLUS, Last week’s B-Sides …

Why have we retained every single affiliate without losing a single one ?  Well, for one thing we provide 6 minutes of fresh, interesting content and then, the payoff is the answer to what the information has been pointing to ( without giving the band & song away necessarily ) PLUS, a deep track that they likely haven’t heard in quite some time.  It’s irresistible and the listener can’t help but tune in for the entirety of the show because IT’S ONLY 6 MINUTES LONG !!

Episodes – B-Side Trax Week of FEB 12th: Take a Walk on the B-Side, 5 Times a Week …

Another week & another 5 trips to stops along the B-Side trail.  Over the years I’ve crafted this show to feature songs that didn’t get beaten to death on our beloved airwaves, but also to tell a story that you probably haven’t heard in a way you probably didn’t expect.  I don’t try to be hilarious ( even though I am ) but I believe a sense of humor is vital in these here times.  So join me won’t you, and bring your listeners along for the ride.  And yes, I didn’t forget about the contest – details coming soon …
