Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.
I'm a long-time rocker, and have enjoyed going thru this thread. Wow, at some rekindled memories. For those that think rock is dead, I feel ya just gotta look for it harder. During my 20s, I'd go into record stores, find the Rock/metal section, and just pilfer thru the albums, looking for new or lesser known bands,(I grew up in 'BFE' and the closest ROCK stations,were outta ear-shot, unless you liked static) and then turning my friends on to them. Bands like Fastway, Mama's Boyz, Black and Blue, Lynch Mob, and one of my all- time faves......Y&T(formerly known as Yesterday and Today)
Another favorite, though they got more air-play, than these others, was Triumph.
Long Live Rock.
