Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of APR 2nd: The “Add a Side of The B-Side” Contest Has Begun & Classic Rock is Coming …
Contact any staff member via phone, email or social media for details on how to qualify your station for this Once-In-A-Lifetime Event !
Also in the offing is the new Classic Rock version of the B-Side. Same great song programming, tons of new stories, same great writing ! This time from your favorite (and a few little-known) Classic Rock artists …
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: Catch My Fall – Billy Idol
Tuesday: Stupify – Disturbed
Wednesday: Polyester Bride – Liz Phair
Thursday Little Black Backpack – Stroke 9
Friday: Good Thing – Fine Young Cannibals
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 look at what a week on the B-Side Classic Rock looks like, plus a link to a show:
Monday: Cities on Flame – Blue Oyster Cult
Tuesday: In The Year 2525 – Zager & Evans
Wednesday: 18 & Life – Skid Row
Thursday Unglued – Stone Temple Pilots
Friday: Walk The Dog – Aerosmith
