I agree with this, although I would say the number in the pot is a bit higher than ten. I am hearing the same songs across multiple stations, sometimes at or very near the same time. Are they telling me that Faction, Deep Tracks, and Willie's Roadhouse listeners all have the same playlist ? I notice that the songs in heavy rotation across several channels change every few weeks. Elder son put forth the idea that their licensing scheme is somehow driving it, that is they license a certain bucket of music for a block of time and run it for a period and across a planned spectrum of channels that the think will make it seem much fresher and random. Riki Tiki Tavi will be airing on Coffee House, 60s on 6, and Deep Vinyl for 4 weeks and then it is returned to obscurity, never to be heard from again. But don't worry, Electric Banana has a month long run coming up this summer.
