    There's a lot of them, because they have six albums.

    This is a weird question.

    Yeah, the list is pretty damn long, and who in the hell knows if I have ever heard Loss of Control on the radio. I don't think so, but someone somewhere might have thrown it on.

    A better question would be which more obscure Roth era tunes have you heard on the radio?

    Loss of control, was recently played on a college radio station run by students.
    That kinda shocked me!

    Never heard Fools played, though.

    I've heard Whiskey & Rhyme, late at night on more major rock stations.

    But now that i heart radio owns every channel, you basically get the same ten songs over & over.

    I think about deep cut radio play a fair amount, actually, I'm in my vehicle so much for my work, and while I now listen to satellite most of the time, I still tune to terrestrial once in a while as well.

    I'm pretty sure I've heard most all the six pack at some point on the radio, to be honest. It'd be easier to say which ones had appeared the least. And I guess we're not counting ADKOT, because I only heard one track on that album on any station, ever.

    But...upon careful reflection...I don't think I've ever heard Happy Trails (I dunno if that can really count, it's not a radio length track that DJs would spin in a regular format). I don't think I've ever heard Spanish Fly (same). I have heard Cathedral, but it just led into Secrets, same with Intruder to Pretty Woman. There was a looooong stretch where I never heard Top Jimmy, but I did finally hear it on the Boneyard a few years back.

    Def the rarest Roth tracks on radio for me in my history - CTBM, MWM, SAITP/OFOTD, TFB, LOC, YNG, WIL, LD, OF.

    Oops. That reminds me. Yeah, def have never heard CGTSNM on the radio either.

    I've heard Happy Trails on the radio, but only used as a bumper at the end of shows.

    Probably easier to list the ones I have heard as they generally play the same 10 to 15 songs all the time.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Rarest ones I heard on Pittsburgh radio:

    You Really Got Me/Happy Trails (rerecorded live Us Fest version)
    Feel Your Love Tonight (except it was Cleveland radio haha)
    You're No Good (used to be played somewhat often)
    Somebody Get Me a Doctor
    Bottoms Up! (indy station)
    Women in Love...... (a couple times strangely on our alt rock station in the early 2000s)
    Take Your Whiskey Home (often in 2000s)
    Mean Street (every now and then)
    Where Have All the Good Times Gone! (every now and then)
    Intruder (preceding OPW)
    Dancing in the Street (unless you count as hit)
    Little Guitars
    Drop Dead Legs
    "5150" (I think)

    Fire in the Hole
    One I Want
    It's About Time
    Tattoo
    She's the Woman
    Stay Frosty (indy station)

    There's a station near me that occasionally does an A to Z where they play the stations catalog alphabetically and there's a part where you get to hear little dreamer and little guitars back to back. It's like a cool obscure vh two for Tuesday.

    Back in the 80s our local rock station would play "classic album sides". I know they played most of the VH albums over time, but my memory isn't that good. It would be fun to hear more variety from ALL bands, as others have mentioned.
