Radio Crystal Blue 3rd Quarter Airplay Chart…


….is now available!
Here are some stats that you need to know:

Tom Principato, Jason Spooner and Sassparilla each received the most airplay over the last 3 months.
For the last 12 months (October 2012  to September 2013), the most airplay was given to Aztec Two Step, followed by Aqua Cherry and Patti DeRosa, then Fred Gillen Jr. and Vance Gilbert, followed by a number of others.
In terms of progressive exposure, Aztec Two Step leads in this category, followed by these in order: Patti DeRosa, Aqua Cherry, Tom Principato, Vance Gilbert, Sirsy, Dana & Susan Robinson, Hungrytown, Meghan Cary, Spuyten Duyvil, and The Steel Wheels.

I’ve also published the 10 artists who, based on mathematical judgement, are most eligible to receive the title Artist of the Year. This rank is solely based on the raw rankings from the quarterly charts.  At the end of the year, I will have a special Twitter-based countdown show to determine who ranks in the top 100.

Congratulations, everyone!
