We’d like to ask a favour

Staff Writer

Last week Radio Today and BPR's launched our online music study, which is intended to provide insights into a weekly list of 25 songs.

We said at the time that, as a new concept, we'd tweak it as we went and learn some lessons.

Frankly, we have had two issues. Firstly there was a technical issue causing the questions to load slowly, which we have now fixed. Secondly, the sample size is not sufficient to close off the study at this point. So we'll keep it live for another week.

Ultimately, the results will only be valid with a suitable sample size, and that's where we're asking for your help. If you could share the link (below) to your stations facebook page and encourage your listeners to 'help you out with the music they hear' we'd appreciate it. The process, now we've fixed our bug, will take about 3-4 minutes.


Our intention is to run this weeks list as a 2-week sample and release them next week.

The list we're currently testing is shown below;

  Daft Punk – Get Lucky
Imagine Dragons – On top of the world
Ed Sheeran – Give me love
Katy Perry – Roar
MKTO – Thankyou
Bernard Fanning – Tell me how it ends
Pink – True love
Vance Joy – Riptide
James Arthur – Impossible
Matt Corby – Resolution
Avicii – Wake me up
Jason Derulo – Talk dirty
Bruno Mars – When I was your man
Miley Cyrus – Wrecking ball
One Republic – Counting Stars
Taylor Swift – Red
Bastille – Pompeii
Lana Del Ray – Summertime Sadness (remix)
Robin Thicke – Blurred Lines
Boy and Bear – Southern Son
Olly Murs – Troublemaker
Lady Gaga – Applause
Of Monsters & Men – Mountain Sound
Jessica Mauboy – To the end of the earth
Armin Van Buuren – This is what it feels like


As we have said, the music list is not designed to be perfect for any one format, but to be an overview of current songs that will have relevance to CHR, Hot AC, AC and Adult stations.

Remember, this is the link to post into your stations newsfeed to encourage your listeners to give their feedback: http://goo.gl/zgylHB

We want to ensure that, in time, this service becomes of value to radio stations and it will only do so with your support in publicising the Research link to your listeners. 
We'd appreciate your help. Thanks!
