30 day song challenge, day 18: a song you wish you heard on the radio

I imagine if I listened to a different radio station, I’d hear this song, but even when I listened to classic rock station, I’ve never heard it played on the radio:

The Last Resort by the Eagles

This is my favorite song by the Eagles and whenever I hear it, I am reminded of that book, Day of the Locusts for some reason. I suppose it isn’t played much on the radio because it is a long song, but so is “Hotel California” and that gets airplay. The truth is I don’t know why the song isn’t played on the radio. It should be.
