True, but I was speaking in terms of the "AOR" Radio format, also known as "Mainstream Rock", which is sadly virtually extinct today. Rock radio today is generally split into sub-formats--AAA, Alternative, Active Rock and Classic Rock--and rarely, if ever, do you get it all on one station today.
Also, Rock Radio stations used to play more than two or three tracks from current albums/CDs. That rarely occurs today.
