Difference in exposure

Posted on October 6th, 2017

How frequently do you check the actual output analyze beyond A and B songs in your #Selector #Powergold or #Musicmaster database? Today, when reviewing a potential client database, some songs in the same power recurrent category was played 22 times in the last week, while others only played once.

I doubt that was their intention and I believe they will need a lot of help.

Some companies program a lot of stations. Glad that this one invests in further development and staff training.
Tomorrow one of their stations will get a new set of clocks and a modified category structure better reflecting the current strategy.


Getting the math right

Showing a client the importance understanding the math when building clocks and categories to get good natural turnovers. And yes, now he understands why 17 instead of 23 songs in this particular category is beneficial to achieve better exposure.

Good music programming is a combination of science and art.

How many people work with the music codes at your station? And are they coded with your station in mind? The other day, I reviewed an AC station where many song parameters come from the company CHR station. What’s mainstream at CHR, are frequently not on the AC, and definitely not for this station

When did you last analyze your competition? (not just sample them)

Posted on August 12th, 2017

A full day snap-shot during prime time hours is a great tool to check what your competition is doing. I suggest putting the name of artist, title, sound code, era, tempo in an Excel sheet and calculate averages as well as exposure. I also recommend marking whether the song play by us.

The result might be very different from your perception of them.

Keep track on the results and remake the monitor if you see vast changes compared to the last monitor. A good rule of thumb is to conduct a monitor once every 4 to 6 months and/or if the competition is doing a significant change. But it is important to remember that in our busy days sampling some songs or just looking at the adds or most played songs get the real feel of what the compettition is doing.

The other week, the results in a client monitor of the competition showed a significant move in both era and tempo towards us.
