For the past weeks, we’ve been using the BDS Radio Airplay charts to create our Weekly Top 10. This is an excellent source as it gives a true impression of what the Country Music industry is doing and how music is moving around. Many syndicated shows use that chart or ones like it for their countdowns. I also use that in addition to your requests to create our daily playlists and what songs get more or less air time. Starting this weekend, we will be changing to another source for the WTT: our own air play stats. We already track and report every song we play for our royalty and licensing provider. We are now using that data to figure and calculate the ten most played songs for that previous week.
We will pull that report every Monday and post it to our WTT page at this link: http://kxrtonline.com/weekly-top-10 we will still leave the #1 song a mystery until the show has been broadcast. We will also indicate movement in the charts with our nifty little arrow icons.
Another major improvement to the show is our new professionally produced show introduction and elements. Huge thanks to Gavan Bruderer Productions for his excellent work! Find a link to his site on our list of links on the side column. This will add some professionalism and familiarity to the show that will stay consistent for the long-term. You will feel the energy and excitement that goes into making the show each week.
Thank you for listening to America’s Country!
