Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of SEP 11th: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You !! B-Side Trax …
I can’t let this day go by without thanking everyone who has sacrificed so much, so this country can still be the best place on the planet … Thank You, Thank You, Thank You !!
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: Panic – The Smiths
Tuesday: Blue Highway – Billy Idol
Wednesday: Twist in My Sobriety – Tanita Takarim
Thursday Hypnotize – System of a Down
Friday: No New Tale To Tell – Love & Rockets
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: White Room – Cream
Tuesday: Rock Lobster – B-52’s
Wednesday: Still The Same – Bob Seger
Thursday Jesus Christ Superstar – Murray Head
Friday: Bargain – The Who
