Melodic Rock ... and AOR, with harder melodic rock in the last hour!

Featured this year…2022


Every 2 weeks we select albums and tracks for more frequent airplay. These can be new releases or reissues.

How do we make our selection? We use feedback from presenters and reviewers, and their opinions at www.getreadytorock.com

The aim is to signpost new artists where possible but not always the most obvious track or single and/or albums/artists worthy of further investigation. A selection of these tracks are previewed in our weekly ‘New to GRTR!’ sequence.

You can follow the playlist via Twitter. We also tweet genre information.
