This Iconic Singer Tried To Take His Own Life – Unsuccessfully ! B-Side Trax …

As a teen, this veteran singer’s girlfriend took her own life.  A few months later in the midst of his depression, he tried to do the same by jumping off of a SoCal pier.  Fortunately for us, he lived to sing another day.  He even immortalized the event in a song.

The Southern California pier he jumped from – Santa Monica  …

B-Side Trax:

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

Santa Monica – Everclear / Click To Play Show

Monday:               Santa Monica – Everclear
Tuesday:               Am I Wrong – Love Spit Love
Wednesday:         Satellite – The Hooters
Thursday:             No One Knows – Queens of The Stone Age
Friday:                  I Stay Away – Alice in Chains

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.
