Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of JUL 31st: Have You Seen The Future ? I see it From The Past – B-Side Trax …

There’s an old saying ” Those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it”.  Well, there’s a lot of truth there, but also, there’s a lot of music from the past that still deserves to be played.  We can’t really make a living at it in large doses, but as ‘spice’, you can really liven up a day-part with an interesting featurette …

Enter 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, 30-second story behind each track. Because it plays to the ‘Short Attention-Span Theater’ we all have nowadays, 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:

Joey – Concrete Blonde / Click To Play Show

Monday:                Joey – Concrete Blonde
Tuesday:                Duality – Slipknot
Wednesday:          Mystify – INXS
Thursday               Water’s Edge – 7 Mary 3
Friday:                   Love Cats – The Cure
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:

Hash Pipe – Weezer / Click To Play Show

Monday:                Telegram Sam – T-Rex
Tuesday:                Hash Pipe – Weezer
Wednesday:          Stone Cold Crazy –  Queen
Thursday               Midnight Maniac – Krokus
Friday:                   Seek & Destroy – Metallica
