Mainstream Rock
MAINSTREAM ROCK (also known as HERITAGE ROCK) is a radio format used by many commercial radio stations in the United States and Canada. FORMAT BACKGROUND Mainstream rock stations are between classic rock and active rock on the programming spectrum, in that they play more classic rock songs focusing in on the 1970s, 1980s and the 1990s than active rock stations. They program a balanced airplay of recent tracks found on active rock playlists, but also more songs closely related to classic rock stations. Mainstream rock is a successor to the widespread album-oriented rock (AOR) format created in the 1970s. However, mainstream rock can be used as a modern lean of classic rock if the playlist has to cut back some active rock artists and songs due to ratings and popularity issues
