This Band Turned Down a Million Dollar$$ To Re-Record Their 6th Album !! B-Side Trax: JAN 29th 2019

The record company said it wasn’t rock enough to play on rock radio & that it was more suited to Urban Radio …  Good thing they didn’t !  The band knew they had to release an album that was even better than their previous blockbuster, and they were convinced that they had.  They were right !



All it did was go 6x Platinum !!

B-Side Trax:

A new concept for radio: a 6-minute featurette that airs once a day, five days a week.  Aside from 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 zero !!

Here’s what aired last week on B-Side Alternative and a link to a recent show:


Monday:                Nobody’s Diary – Yaz
Tuesday:                Welcome To Jamrock – Damian Nesta ‘Jr Gong’ Marley
Wednesday:          Industrial Disease – Dire Straits
Thursday               Mother Mother – Tracy Bonham
Friday:                   Pop Song ’89 – REM
  

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:                Were To Now St Peter ? – Elton John
Tuesday:                Kick – INXS  
Wednesday:          Plain Shame – Peter Frampton
Thursday               Day After Day – Badfinger
Friday:                   No More Tears – Ozzy Ozbourne 

B-Nice,


Mike
