Etymology[edit]

(This etymology is missing or incomplete. Please add to it, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.)

This phrase comes from when radio DJs played vinyl records. The disks had two sides -- on a 45 RPM disk, sides A & B. The song that the record company wanted to promote most heavily would go on the A side. So when a DJ played that side, he'd sometimes say, "And now on the flip side...", and play side B, the lesser known track.
