Radio Stations - Music Logs


To each their own but not loving that at all.

Not one of those songs is adventurous or has any sort of wow factor. All have been played to death IMO.

I was recently looking at The Sound playlist from NZ and for me it’s just so much better.


I agree. I envy the good folks of NZ that have such a wide choice of radio stations covering various genres, even in smaller places such as Queenstown & Wanaka. :slight_smile:


In NZ there’s more than 15 commercial stations in most places, so to stand out from the crowd you need to do something different.

I think you’ll find the MMM format is a “holding pattern” one with 350 or so songs for the start of the new year and when everyone is back, it will broaden out and move around a bit.


It would really need to :slight_smile:
I couldn’t listen to that for very long at all.


I could, and I did! :stuck_out_tongue:


Had a listen to Coles Radio today, i’m not sure whether the playlists are different from state to state (doubt it), but the fact that they have streams for different states makes me wonder. Unfortunately, I can’t access the streams right now so can’t verify on that. Anyway, here is a playlist during part of the afternoon program known as ‘The Studio’ which is usually hosted out of Brisbane by Miriam Young but it seemed to be someone else today.

It’s a playlist with a couple of songs I really like, and a couple I strongly despise. It is sort of expected with this station though, you would have to have something for everyone seeing as it’s played in major supermarkets.


First time in a long time I’m not working NYE so I’ll be out listening to some stations and posting their logs :+1::grin:

A pretty safe party playlist with the songs you usually have in a party playlist. Gold’s party playlist on Saturday nights is much better, with some genuinely good songs. There were no ads or any other breaks though, just straight music which was good and explains the high number of songs here.




Was happy with this one as well, heard it on MMM this afternoon too.


Though the kind of song that works better at the end of a party night, not early on.


The only time it works around 9pm is on WSFM or 2MMM :wink:


As is tradition, we start in New Zealand, and this year we’re going to a station I listened to a lot in my weekend in Auckland in late October. I’d suggest 80% of these songs wouldn’t get a look in on any Australian radio station.

I’ve picked that station up briefly this morning via E-Skip in Sydney, in which I received it on 93.2 from Invercargill (see “AM & FM DX” thread). It was playing “Vasoline” by Stone Temple Pilots when I was receiving it.
