Classic Rock with a twist - No song repeats for one year and a weekly featured artist. During the "free" 1st & 3rd hours the DJ does just that, spins discs, rarely talks (except to fill time at the end of an hour). During the second hour the DJ performs the expected duties of a DJ, such as sharing knowledge of material, great enthusiasm for material & exploring "new" material from the era.

BackTracking can run either two or three hours. If you only need two hours don't down load the second hour (for which there is the minimum PRX charge) and run only the first and third hours for free. If you want all three hours I'd like to get some compensation for my efforts.

I almost always (leave myself a bit of wiggle room) have the most recent edition of BackTracking posted to PRX by the Tuesday morning (MST) before each show.

BT Replay shows include, for free, the second hour, but all three hours have been edited together without commentary, except an intro and outro, essentially 175 minutes of continuous music.

Nearly 25 years ago BackTracking was launched at a small town commercial radio station. I loved playing the music, but hated the commercial platform. BackTracking is a return to great days of FM radio heard decades ago; short breaks, long songs and DJs who knew more about the music they were playing than I did.

There are hundreds of Classic Rock stations today, but for the most part they are all streamed from one or two syndicated programs. They have more noise than music, and DJs who have as much personality as unsweetened oatmeal and wouldn't know a 45 from a 12" lp, let alone the speed each played at.

I do my best not to play a song a second time for at least a year, checking every week's play list against Spinitron's previous 52 week's of BT playlists. Every song is "leveled" so as to provide even playback volumes despite original recording levels. Any song knowingly containing profanity has been edited for airplay.

I will happily provide station specific promos for BackTracking, just email me at thegregariousrecluse.krza@gmail.com once BackTracking has a time slot in a station's programming calendar. Please provide a script so I don't have to make any assumptions which might be incorrect. Hide full description
