Top 100 Public Radio Songs for the Week of November 9th

How this list of the Top 100 Public Radio Songs is 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 Public Radio stations are  included?
Stations who are monitored and their charts are listed. Specifically, WFUV, KCMP, KRCL, WXPN, KEXP, KXXT, KCRW, KCSN.

What about all the other stations?
Only Public Radio 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 its 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.

Does NPR Make This List?

No.  NPR has no affiliation with the this list of the Top 100 Public Radio Songs.

Sorry for skipping a week.  Things were very busy In The Bromo.  I hope you got to Fringe Fest!
