That’s during the day though. Nova in particular play a lot more new music at night. Of the three Nova is still the most CHR.
Try Triple J, Triple J Unearthed or The Edge. These are options on FM/DAB. There are other community DAB options as well in the capitals
Or the internet, which is where a lot of older listeners are forced to go to find their music.
I still think even if they played all songs on the ARIA top 80 it would still be stagnant, at least compared to decades gone by.
None more stagnant than 2014,15,16,17…
Why, because they play the Aria Top 80?? Doubt it
But it is now because they play the top 50 from six months ago and 12 months ago and 18 months ago to up to 20 years ago.
The biggest problem is the limited playlist on high rotation. No matter if it was fresh hits or mouldy oldies from 30 years ago, they play them to death. They need a wider playlist.
That 2DAY FM playlist isn’t half bad certainly some unflogged stuff on there.
My highlight there was Phil Collins, Another Day In Paradise. I Love that song
Here’s WSFM’s playlist during that same hour, thanks to Radio Volna.
101.7 WSFM, Sydney

Not a bad playlist actually. There’s a bit of a differential with Smooth, particularly lately as Smooth seems to be trending a little younger and sounding a bit bland to me.
If only 4BH would adopt a format like this it would work!! Memo to Macquarie!
Given there will be 2 classic hits station in Sydney (soon) here is the list from Fun. Very different playlists.
Midnight Blue - Lou Gramm
The Weight - Jimmy Barnes
She Bop - Cyndi Lauper

Had these three already this hour
Why would you bother tuning in every day when you just hear the same oldies every day?
I’m wishing we had all the repetitive fresh hits we had a year ago rather than the repetitive oldies.
This looks like an interesting site/service, which has music logs going back to 2015. Registration is required to use it.
