The classic rock format evolved from AOR radio stations that were attempting to appeal to an older audience by including familiar songs of the past with current hits.[5] In 1980, AOR radio station M105 in Cleveland began billing itself as “Cleveland’s Classic Rock,” playing a mix of rock music from the mid-1960s to the present.[6] Similarly, WMET called itself “Chicago’s Classic Rock” in 1981.[7] In 1982, radio consultant Lee Abrams developed the “Timeless Rock” format which combined contemporary AOR with rock hits from the 1960s and 1970s.[8]

Yup, an LA thing. Maybe a Left Coast thing, but a market almost had to support a strong Modern Rock station back in the ’80s in order to have a sufficient nostalgic base. And yes, there’s the jock/presentation piece – something that’s too easy to overlook. Thanks, Dan.
