Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of NOV 13th: What Was Your Very 1st Live Concert ? B-Side Trax …
My 1st shows were these two; Chicago & Grand Funk. I am so thankful for every live show I ever went to (well, most of ’em) & I wish that I’d gone to so many more !! Music has been such a huge part of my life & I suspect that it’s been the same for many of you.
Nostalgia is good in small doses, like 6 minutes a day 🙂 and that’s just how we on the B-Side deliver it. Give your audience a little treat every weekday with a trip down memory lane …
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:
Monday: Alone + Easy Target – Foo Fighters
Tuesday: Creep – Stone Temple Pilots
Wednesday: Can’t Get There From Here – REM
Thursday Step it Up – Stereo MC’s
Friday: Lightning Crashes – Live
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: Ice Cream Man – Van Halen
Tuesday: Heart-Shaped Box – Nirvana
Wednesday: New Girl Now – Honeymoon Suite
Thursday Walk on The Wild Side – Lou Reed
Friday: Whammer Jammer/Hard Drivin’ Man – J Geils Band
