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 …

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: 

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
