Carl you have it half right when you are considering album oriented rock being from an album. That said I will give you an example. In A Gadda Da Vida album version vs single version. The single version has three fourths of the song cut off. The album Rock version is 20 minutes long. Hence the term Album oriented Rock. Another example Love is like oxygen by
sweet many commercial so called want to be Classic Rock stations are playing the single. Not acceptable here at The Legacy. That is sacrilegious. I will only play the full version of Love Is Like Oxygen by Sweet. ok I’ll give you an easy one how about Boston Foreplay and Long Time many want to be Classic Rock stations do not play the whole song. another song Loving Touching Syesterday’s AM Radio. Journey it is supposed to go into City Of The Oriented Rock before it is endangeredhowever if your station does not play the full song you are a pop station because you only play singles. It does not matter if you’re playing it from an mp3 or CD it’s still album-oriented Rock so long as you follow those guidelines. Part 15 and LPFM is the FM of thr 70s and pop stations is like yesterdays AM Radio. I want to re educate folks on Album Oriented Rock before it is endanger do to corporate Radio.
