The main reason those songs don't get played lies in the research that radio stations do to find out what songs listeners want to hear.

The fact that a song was a hit or got lots of airplay when it was new does not mean that it is something that listeners want to hear today. Songs burn out, songs become irrelevant, songs that listeners used to like just don't have appeal any more.

Stations test their music among a statistical sample of their target listeners and the listeners score the songs. Ones that don't score well just don't get played any more.

Looking at the list you made, I fully understand why those songs get little or no airplay today.
