I recently started listening to oldies radio stations quite a bit. I'm not sure if it's just a thing with our local stations, but they seem to ignore some very important artists entirely. Even though some of these groups did have some top 40 songs (at least I think they did). For example, I have never heard a Peter, Paul & Mary song, and the only Bob Dylan song I ever hear is a very occasional Like A Rolling Stone. I can understand the reasons for not playing certain improtant songs, I don't begrudge them for not playing Alice's Restaurant because they really can't play many 20 minute songs. Maybe these songs weren't really all that popular in their time, although my father says that there were many songs he remembers listening to at college that don't get played anymore. Does anyone know why this is, or if I have a wrong view of oldies music (i.g. there was more than the Beatles and Stones)?
