Live 365 provides us the statistics on how the tracks are "performing". 

Here's a technical overview if yer interested:

Track Power Rating

The Track Power Rating is Live365's measurement of the performance of any given track. It considers all the listener-to-track data we have and puts it into one easy-to-compare number.

The Track Power Rating formula gives more importance/weight to certain bits of information over others. For instance, a listener clicking the  button beside a track is a stronger indication they like the track then just giving it a "thumbs up " Another example would be giving a track a "thumbs down " is a stronger indication of dislike then changing radio stations while a song is playing.

Live365's Track Power Rating weighting
 Thumbs Up
 Thumbs Down
 Left the station
while track was playing Power Rating
Value +10 +5 +3 -3 -0.1 Total

Score = ((buy * 10) + (wish * 5) + (up * 3) + (down * -3) + (drops * -0.1)) / max(total_begin_listeners, total_end_listeners)

This score is then put in a list with all Live365 tracks across all stations. The highest score is given the value 10 (5 stars) and the lowest value is given the value .5 (half star).

So even though your ratings are specific to your station, the overall 0-10 scale takes into consideration all tracks across all stations.

Each time a "Buy" button is clicked for a particular track, the data increments by +10. Each time a Thumbs Down is clicked, the data is incremented by -3. Each track-related action figures into the final Power Rating score.

Then, the score number is assigned to a number of stars for easy identification/comparison in managing your MP3 files.

Track Power Ratings
Stars Score Description
 10 Exceptional!               
 8.5 Very good
 6.5 Good
 4.5 So So
 2.5 Poor
n/a 0 not rated

We take the raw score (details below), factor in the audience size, and then spread the results across the spectrum of 0.0-5.0 stars, with .5 star precision (0.0-10.0 numerically).

You can always view all of the underlying data that make up the Power Rating by clicking the "Details" tab on your Edit - Tracks page or go directly to the Track Rating Detail Page from here.
