Hmmm, maybe the listening hours have gone down cos people are out & about more as it gets more spring & summer like in certain parts of the globe?

I think Elvis is still on the new playlist as I'm sure I heard it the other day.  If anyone hates it blame me cos it was my suggestion! As I mentioned to Eric, I think Jack may well have listened to Elvis & today I came across some related info:  there is a big annual rodeo event held in Houston called the Houston Livestock Show & when Elvis appeared there twice in 1974 it broke attendance records. on each occasion.  Maybe Jack even took Bobby & Lureen to see it on a family outing.

Anyway, keep up the good work Eric  :)

The Elvis Presley song is actually one of the more highly rated songs.  :D  ;)

I'm disappointed that you chose not to play the 15 new songs back to back - or even post what the new songs are - and what songs have been deleted ... Heard 'Beautiful' on my local radio station yesterday ...

Gordon Lightfoot's "Beautiful" is one of the 15 songs that were added.  :D

The reason I've chosen not to disclose the playlist is because I want folks to tune in and be genuinely surprised happy fulfilled pleased entertained when they hear a new song in the playlist.  If I just told you what songs were added, would you even bother to listen to the station anymore?  I'm tryin' ta keep the integrity of the station here, and keep it unique and fresh/new.  Give ya a reason ta tune in...

If ya really want to know what was added, I'll PM you the list.  I can't remember honestly what I took out, because well, I took them out. LOL.  They were the lowest rated songs, and the songs with the most "drops" (people tuning out of the station while the song is playing).  Rest assured Sheriff I do remember that one of the songs taken out was "Stars in the Rearview Mirror".   ;)

How do other folks feel about this?  Should we publish the current playlist?

Yea!!! Woopie - Did you remove "If You Could Read my Mind"?

  If I just told you what songs were added, would you even bother to listen to the station anymore? 

A course I would!

If ya really want to know what was added, I'll PM you the list.

That'd be nice! I'd like ta see it.

Wow I didn't know that it mattered when I tunned out - I'll be carefull not ta tune out during one a my favourites then.

Thang kew fer this Eric! (I listened for 3 hours last Monday & didn't recognise a single new tune!)

Being the notoriously curious person I am, I would like to read a list of what was taken out and what was added new instead.
But it's not that important to me that I would say I'm disappointed if you choose not to do it. I'm fine with whatever you decide, darlin  :-*

:o Like Roland, I didn't know that. Just yesterday I shut BBM radio while He Was a Friend of Mine was playing, because I had to go. So you have to substract one drop from that song by the end of the month  ;)  :laugh: - it's one of my favorites.

"If I could read read my mind" is still on there - I've definitely heard it twice cos I noticed it after reading the posts about it.

I hate to quit listening in the middle of a track I really really like.  I am always curious to know what the next track will be when I'm about to sign off just in case it's one of my faves. 

I don't mind about whether the playlist is published or not - having it available by PM for those that want it is fine.

Acutally I think it only counts as a "drop" if you stop listening to tune into another Live365 station.  (I.E. "change the dial".)  I don't think it counts if you just close out your browser.  I'm sure I'd see a lot more "drops" if that were the case. 

I've PM'd the Sheriff the current playlist.  For his records down at the precinct.    ;)

I'm so tempted to put this as my signature. LOL   :laugh: :
