There are two sides to every story and that is certainly true with music. This Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28, join the hosts of OpenAir to uncover both sides of the story with “FlipSide Weekend” - back-to-back singles from your favorite artists.
Album singles come with A-Sides and B-sides. Labels usually record what they think will be the more successful song on the A-Side,but there are plenty of instances where the B-Side has come out on top.
“I think the most famous instance of a flip flopped single came in 1957 when Buddy Holly's ‘That'll Be the Day’ was the B-Side to ‘Rock Around with Ollie Vee,’” notes OpenAir Program Director Mike Flanagan.
May 26-28, tune in to OpenAir to discover something new about the singles you know and love during “FlipSide Weekend.”
