    Are the songs that were overplayed originally niw on current CL rotation? I remember Free falliin and that annoying j Giles song, can't remember the title being played every 5 seconds.

    Not sure if they play this, actually the only time I hear CR stations us when I'm at harbor freight or ace hdw.

    Couple of Simple Minds tracks, these guys could do anthemic songs well. When Jim Kerr married Chrissie Hind, the Pretenders rhythm section seemed to have improved.

    Last one is by Stevie Wright, ex lead singer of the Easybeats. George Young Producing, Malcolm Young on guitar. Only 11 minute song to reach number 1.

    Yeah, may be a bit long for AOR although Parts 1 & 2 get played now and again on Aussie AOR stations.

    Evie is a great example of where modern Classic rock stations could do better. Throw on some long jams and take us on a journey.
    All 3 songs show how great radio could be.

    They used to. I remember Dire Straits Telegraph Road being played regularly but you're never going to hear Pink Floyd's Echoes or similar. yeah, it's a pity.

    I Do remember hearing peter Frampton's "Do you feell" on a local AOR station a couple of years ago for the first time ever but it was an Alice Cooper syndicated program, that blew my mind.

    I catch his show sometimes Alice throws in some deep cuts. I heard him spin Gentle Giant. Good stories too.

    Gotta have some ballads too. This is a live fm broadcast. 3 minutes of tuning and chatter but a great cover of a song that should also get played on the radio.

    Check out "Don't Lay no Boogie Boogie On The King Of Rock And Roll". Long rap at the beginning to set the song up.:thumbsup:
