It has been stated that one difference that CHR has adapted is not resting popular songs after their initial run, but letting them drop into "recurrent" status. I got to thinking about this and wonder what would've happened if this was done during the height of Beatlemania. Just counting #1 songs by the Beatles and not their plethora of classics that didn't do that well or the catalogs of other British Invasion artists, or American artists from the period of 1964-66, there were 14 songs that had they not been rested, would've been all over the radio, taking up space generally intended for current releases. The MOR category would probably have been gone completely, for lack of room and who knows what else? Am I overthinking this?
