Aor music on the radio

AOR, or Adult-Oriented Rock, is a subgenre of rock music that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s. AOR music typically features polished, melodic, and radio-friendly songs with a strong emphasis on vocal harmonies and production values. The genre is often associated with the soft rock and pop rock styles, and the term is sometimes used interchangeably with these genres.

Some of the most popular AOR artists include Toto, Journey, Foreigner, Boston, and REO Speedwagon. These bands rose to prominence during the late 1970s and early 1980s, and their hits continue to be radio staples today. Other notable AOR artists include Air Supply, Chicago, and Kansas.

There are several radio stations that specialize in AOR music. Some of the most popular include Classic Rock Florida, Classic Rock 109, and Big R Radio - Rock Mix. These stations feature a mix of classic AOR hits as well as newer releases from contemporary AOR artists. Many AOR fans also listen to satellite radio stations such as SiriusXM's The Bridge or The Pulse, which play a mix of AOR and other adult contemporary styles. Overall, AOR remains a popular genre for those who enjoy melodic, guitar-driven rock with strong vocal performances and catchy hooks.
