I just heard a new radio station here in Seattle that is showcasing a really quite revolutionary programming format. They call themselves "Quick 96" and they play up to 420 songs per hour!! The marketing pitch is something like this: "You have no attention span. You multi-task. We give you only the best of the songs that you want to hear." etc. etc.
It's really interesting. I listened this morning and then again this afternoon. They played rock music in the morning and a bit of a mix in the afternoon. I only heard one commercial - and it was about 5 - 10 seconds long.
Oh, btw - each song is played for only 5 - 8 seconds!!! They play the most popular part of the song - (the refrain???).
I'm not sure whether I really like the format or not. I'll be very interested to see if it sticks.
Has anyone else heard of anything like this in their area?
I love innovation!!
Onward and Upward!
