Episodes – Episodes – B-Side Trax – Week of JUN 12th: It’s The Stories … B-Side Trax !

As the old saying goes “Every Picture Tells a Story”.  Think of every band as having a thousand pictures.  There are so many great songs that didn’t get burned up on our beloved radio and with them, so many great stories.

With the eyes & ears of love, I tell the stories behind these great bands, albums & songs.  I also do my best to keep it short, after all, I just want the listener to stay plugged in to hear if they’ve figured out what the song/band is …

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:

Daughter – Pearl Jam / Click To Play Show

Monday:                 Naked – Sprung Monkey
Tuesday:                Daughter – Pearl Jam
Wednesday:          Holiday in Cambodia – Dead Kennedys
Thursday               Black & White – INXS
Friday:                   Cherry Bomb – Runaways

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:

‘Round Here – Counting Crows / Click To Play Show

Monday:                 Fixing a Hole – The Beatles
Tuesday:                Magic Power – Triumph
Wednesday:          Wasted Words – Allman Brothers
Thursday               ‘Round Here – Counting Crows
Friday:                   Uncle Salty – Aerosmith
