Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of DEC 4th: Or What About The Time Dave Matthews Caught a Ride To His Own Show From a Fan ? B-Side Trax …

It’s true.  Emily & her boyfriend were just driving to a concert when they picked up a poor guy whose bike had a flat tire & had forgotten his cell phone.  Turns out he was the star of the show !  Their kindness netted them front-row tickets, backstage passes and an invitation to dinner.  It pays to be nice to strangers …  Sometimes …

The stories are real, each one fascinating in its own right.

B-Side Trax:

A fairly new concept: 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:                 Ants Marching – Dave Matthews Band
Tuesday:                Candy – Iggy Pop
Wednesday:          Bombs Below – Living Things
Thursday               Sell Out – Reel Big Thing 
Friday:                   What’s So Funny … ( ‘Bout … ) – Elvis Costello

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:                Children of The Sun – Billy Thorpe
Tuesday:                Once in a lifetime – Talking Heads
Wednesday:          Modern Day Cowboy – Tesla
Thursday               Just Like Me – Paul Revere & The Raiders 
Friday:                   NY Groove – Ace Frehley
