    I will hear early Grateful Dead and Touch Of Gray on my local classic rock station WRZZ on Parkersburg WV. Never heard any late 70's stuff

    The Kinks are way underplayed on Radio. So many possible hits. And maybe they were played when they were released?

    I heard this song accidentally the other day for the first time, and I loved it. I have never once heard it on the radio.



    They also sang it with Daryl Hall, and it was pretty impressive there too:

    Amost any number by Rory G. is a "deep cut". The man got very litle airplay beyond a few AOR stations in major markets and college radio stations in The States @ his lifetime or after.

    Good call Crazy Gnome.

    This, OTOH, got a fair amount of play, @ least in the major markets, or @ least in the big stations around Chicago circa 1967-8 or whenever this number happened to emerge.

    Pretty well=know artifact of the latter stage of CT's "good" period, this one received a lotta airplay in the Midwest, but can't vouch for its popularity @ the balance of American radio.

    Good to know. I first heard it on XM radio a few years ago. They often played songs that i never heard on my Classic Rock stations. This song could fit into the category songs modern classic rock stations have forgotten.

    "Touch Of Grey" made a big splash in Top 40 rotation around the Midwest in circa '87-'88, but "Shakedoen Street" did not.

    Definitely did not make it to the "classic rock" outlets. And a helluva number. Roy got screwed over 'n' over it seems.

    When was the last time anyone heard Victoria on the radio? (Their best song, IMO)
