Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of OCT 9th: The First Record I Ever Bought – B-Side Trax …

I do.  It was the 45 ( remember those ? ) of R Dean Taylor’s “Indiana Wants Me”.  You see, my next door neighbor girlfriend was from Indiana.  At first, I had to play it on my parent’s stereo because I didn’t have my own.  But that was soon to change and so was the music I’d be listening to.

Music has always been important in my life, and I feel that it’s important in a lot of peoples lives.  I like giving people what they like.  What was your first record ??

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:                Legalize it – Peter Tosh
Tuesday:                Such Great Heights – The Postal Service
Wednesday:          Bring on the Dancing Horses – Echo & The Bunnymen
Thursday               Guerilla Radio – Rage Against The Machine
Friday:                   88 Lines About 44 Women – The Nails

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:                30 Days in The Hole – Humble Pie
Tuesday:                Can’t Get There From Here – REM
Wednesday:          All The Young Dudes – Mott The Hoople
Thursday               California Sun – The Rivieras
Friday:                   Kickstart My Heart – Motley Crue
