Our next show we will be featuring a mixxed bag as our double inauguration show we're inviting all you break a dawn -jawn type folks to join us in your living rooms for a listening party like no other!!! where you can listen to us from the comfort of your beds and snuggies and when we play a tune or something that hits a nerve or bell or there is that tune that you really want to hear and think we WILL have it then call us up in studio and if your really keen we'll share your bside view's on air.

Inauguration Show...

...well folks the moment has finally arrived with bsides official inaugural show happening Monday March 23rd on CKUT 90.3 ...we've been approved and for the moment we're occupying the airwaves every 2ND Monday from4 - 7 AM

In future we, your hosts JJ Ford and Serious Black will be posting our play lists the night before or the morning of the show; eventually we will have our sets up for download and podcast...

Until then keep your dial tuned to CKUT 90.3 Mondays from 4 - 7 AM

what is bsides?

B-Sides (a musical odyssey)
The theory of B-Sides is as follows: “A-sides” are often what the record company want the public to hear, but “B-sides” are more often what the artist want the public to hear. On air we would attempt to do justice to our favorite artists’ records by airing the less played songs, but frequently the most loved by fans. We will also try to offer a more diverse selection of genres than the average music radio hour. Who listens to one type of music anymore? With the advent of such devices as mp3 players, few limit themselves to only listening to a singular genre of music. While our parents generation had to make do with only one or two new records a month, our generation has the ability to obtain entire discographies in a matter of hours…. for FREE! (Not that we’re promoting illegal downloading, but it’s a reality!) So that leaves the public, with their waning musical appetites, to continuously digest large and diverse amounts of new music. What we will aim to achieve with the Monday 4-7 am slot is exactly that, offer them as much of a diverse musical experience as possible, all the while staying true to the theory of B-Sides and playing the tracks seldom heard over the air-waves. And besides all of the above, B-Sides aims to be an enjoyable way to go to sleep Sunday night or wake up Monday morning
