How do you like the newly expanded playlist?
« on: July 26, 2007, 01:36:40 am »
Our ratings are significantly lower than they used to be.  I thought this would be a good time to do some research and solicit some feedback on the station.

A month ago we expanded the playlist from a running time of 10 hours to 18 hours of songs and music.  What are your thoughts so far?  Choose up to 2 answers.

Don't see a good option above? Please also feel free to provide more feedback here in this thread as well.  We need to know what's working and what's not working with the station. 

Thank you in advance for your important and helpful feedback.

Hmm, I posted elsewhere that I thought there was a lot more country music in the extended playlist.  Now I think there is more AOR/soft rock ballad-y type tracks.  I guess this is because the subject matter lends itself to that type of song, specifically the lyrics.  I tend not to be keen on these tracks when listening to the radio as a background activity as I tend naturally to hear the music more than the lyrics themselves when listening in that manner & in this type of track, I see the music as more of a backing to often quite long & involved lyrics & I can't pick out the lyrics themselves, other than to just hear an emotive voice going on & on! Now that's not to diss any of this tracks, as no doubt the lyrics are very meaningful.  In some cases the lyrics are more punchy & the music compliments them very well.  Some work for me, in general the majority do not. 

I was struck that you had included an option in your poll for not hearing your favourites so often.  While that is true, it makes it all the more of a nice surprise when one pops up! Also if I like a track that much then I will make an effort to make sure I have it in my personal collection for anytime access.

My all-time BBM radio fave artiste is EmmyLou Harris, particularly the tracks Goodbye & Pledging My Love . & to even it up, my fave track from a male is Steve Earle  Lonelier than than this (Ennis encapsulated in song-form!).  & finally in the interests of completeness, fave instrumentals are anything by Gustav Santaolalla or Bruce Kaphan's slide guitar stuff. Oh, & the amazing ambient soundscapes of Hammock.   Never before BBM would I have encountered any of these.  Thanks for widening my aural horizons BBM & BBM radio  :)

More and more I've been using the radio while surfing and doing housework - I'm enjoying it...
