I have some playlists of year charts and I want to run random tracks from these in rotations, how can I do this?

You can use Genre as Years. I mean you have to create Genre = 1971, Genre = 1972 etc. then set every song to the appropriate genre and create a rotation as you like: all genre=1971 or 2 tracks from 1971 and one from 1972 and so on (of course with some jingles in the middle). My 2 cents, maybe somebody else has some other good solution.

Instead of using Genre you could also create a Sub-Category. For every year you have to create a sub-category and add the songs of that particular year to that sub-category. The option Genre you can use to assign if it is a pop, rock, country etc, song.
You can use Track Manager to change the sub-category of songs from a particular year.
