The truth is--and I really HATE to admit this...is that there's no 'magic formula' on what will sell like hotcakes. True--we had a template back in the late 70's til the early 90's for 'rock radio'. It's what most modern retro acts pander to today. But even heritage acts can't get their new music on radio anymore.
Good examples,Shademan. and many more out there to choose from. Bands like Saga,Kim MItchell,April Wine,Trooper,etc were huge in Canada,but never became headliners anywhere else to my knowledge. They had a hit or three hre in the US,but never got to another level. Guess there is always only so much room on any station for promoting whatever format they employ--rock included. SAd but true.. T

ps: still need that modern melrock station on the dial,but there's no money to be made there--say the powers that be. And money always talks of course. In the meantime, lots of great bands continue to go largely unnoticed..
