Re: Can a radio station's playlist be too big?
Interesting -back in the days of my friend Alan 'Fluff' Freeman's POTP's one hour show on Sundays on the BBC light Programme at 4PM, it was found by a BBC survey that the listeners went up at least 20 times on the last half hour when he played the 'top ten' chart, from the No. 10 to the No. 1. Alan, and his producer realised that very quickly, and so always kept to that pattern -it worked. Luxy knew this too, and continually replayed well known hits. It was interesting (because of the MW QSB), the playtime of each record was reduced to about a half. This helped prevent listeners retuning to something else, because after the QSB fade, another record would be playing. That service could not go on reliable LW then, because Luxy's LW channel was used (and still is) for their French pan European service. Yes, so 'obscure' music alone does not attract many listeners, David LW
