Unconventional Meal Pt 1 Playlist

This week is a bit of an experiment, and unconventional one at that. I’ve been studying music for radio airplay for the better part of my career (dating back to the late 1990s). I’ve always been fascinated by what songs get promoted by record labels and other tracks featured on radio compared to other selections from an album. To this day, I still don’t completely understand why some labels, management and bands promote some songs on radio and not others. So, in an effort to expand our collective music pallets, we’re going to dine on an Unconventional Meal (musically speaking). Some tracks from from well-known artists, but would be considered B-sides from die hard followers. Others are just simply artists who deserve to be showcased on a broad scale but haven’t to this point. Whatever you enjoy, please pick up and purchase form the links below. Enjoy!
