It’s a Classic Hits format featuring 30-second audio documentaries that give radio listeners a comprehensive look at the stories behind the biggest Classic Hits songs of all time. The new audio series for Classic Hits radio stations is an addition to Benztown’s “Behind the Song” audio documentaries for the Classic Rock and Classic Country formats, which debuted last year. Stations can find the new series in Westwood One’s Avalanche library; Classic Country “Behind the Song” series in Westwood One’s Horsepower library and in Benztown’s Classic Hits library. Each category will be updated weekly moving forward, for a complete library of stories behind the top 100 songs in each genre.
Justin Case, Director of Programming and Imaging, Benztown, said, “All of our favorite classic hits have catchy lyrics and grooves that make you do weird things on the dance floor, but they’re also classic because of their stories. Ray Avila and KC Styles did a fantastic job of bringing these stories to life. Classic Hits listeners will be even more engaged now that they know that Sly Stallone personally called Survivor to get “Eye Of The Tiger” made!”
