The 100 Public Radio Songs for the ending September 27, 2018

The Top 100 Public Radio Songs for The Week Ending September 27, 2018

How was this list created:

Individual public radio stations charts are collected from public means. They are then combined using Microstrategy's desktop client to tally all the spins per song on the stations.

FAQ

What stations included?
Stations who are monitored and their charts are listed. Specifically, WFUV, KCMP, KCRL, WXPN, KEXP, KXXT, KCRW, KCSN.

What about all the other stations?
Only Stations whose charts are published by one of the services are available. Stations generally don't post their top spins report on their websites.

How accurate is the list?
Since it represents just a fraction of the AAA Public Radio Music Stations, it's a general and small snapshot of the overall public radio Triple A community. But it is accurate for these stations.

I can't believe some of these songs aren't higher or lower on this list. What's up with that?
This list is based on spins. Every station has it's own rotation strategy and philosophy about how many times a song should be played each week.

For example, one station may play their top spins 23 times a week and some may only play their top spin 7 times a week. Stations that play the same songs more often are likely to have greater influence on the final national ranking.

Can I listen On Spotify?
