Re: Dua Lipa "Levitates" back into the Top 5 on Top 40???

Unlike our friends in the U.K, American current based radio, which has been a mess this whole millennium, is in a cycle now where without developing that credibility as the premiere trend setter, cannot make that lemonade from the lemons of current music offerings. Levitate, along with Blinding Ligh...

Re: Anitta 's "Girl From Rio" was reported by 6 US Pop Radio as one of her "Top Picks" in the week at All Access.

Obviously this song is a no brainer for markets like LA, NYC, Miami etc...but I think that it will work in any market. It's a fun song but mainly what it's got going for it is a extremely weak class of product for U.S chr going into this summer. CHR has always found a way around this problem by pick...

Re: Ariana Grande - 3 songs in the Top 12 (and #37)

Positions is gaining again? lol American radio is so clueless when it comes to current based music formats. It's funny because with Classic Hits/Rock and Urban AC we still do some of the best radio on the planet. ...but current based formats, pop, hip hop, alternative...American radio hasn't got a c...

Re: Hot AC: Is it time to move "Blinding Lights" into recurrent?

With the crap that American hoc and chr shove down people's throats are you surprised that among the choices that are familiar, Blinding Lights won't die? Blinding Lights is not American radios problem, it was and still is it's only savior. Blinding Lights should remain in power recurrent for a week...

Re: Wake Up!!!! Hot Ac and CHR

Re: Why is alternative rock radio so unlistenable as of late?

LOL The history of "alternative" music/formats starts with relevance with KROQ, the rock of the 80s. The format was never a "guitar rock" one, it played new wave music after punk and it really was that new wave music that made it famous. It was lots of UK and others imports and it was a new sound th...

Re: Does anyone feel like classic rock radio stations play most of the same music?

Yeah, Classic Rock radio may be killing it recently in the ratings but I think that every Classic Rock radio station should program Emily's Spotify playlist. Who cares what a couple hundred million people expect to hear when they turn on the Classic Rock radio station, Emily matters more and they sh...

9-28-16-Not a single spin from any USA radio station. 5-19-17- #1 song at hot ac. They can get their music anywhere, but when you develop a track record of always playing their favorite songs first, that they need you in their life because you set the trends, you play the future hits before any othe...
