Radio Stations - Music Logs


#41

I think 7HO & Hot 91’s format would be similar to Wave FM in Wollongong, which is also owned by Grant.

Speaking of which, whilst I did post the following log on the old forum, which has since become inaccessible, I thought it would be worth reposting it here on this new forum, whilst we’re still on the topic of Grant stations. This is from last November, which I compared Wave FM with the region’s #1 station, i98.
I conducted this just days before the most recent Wollongong radio ratings were released, which showed i98 flogging Wave by nearly 10%, with the latter also being beaten by ABC Illawarra for the #2 overall spot. Looking at the below playlists, it’s not hard to see why.

96.5 Wave FM - Wollongong, NSW
"80s, 90s & Now" (it has since been shortened to “80s to Now”)
Monday 2nd November 2015 - 10am-11am AEDT

“Shine” Years & Years
"Hymn To Her" The Pretenders
"What Do You Mean?" Justin Bieber
"Bright Lights" Matchbox 20
"Break My Stride" Unique II
"Last Night" Good Charlotte
"You Can Leave Your Hat On" Joe Cocker
"Hula Hoop" Omi
"With Arms Wide Open" Creed
"Fight Song" Rachel Platten
"Underneath The Radar" Underworld

i98FM - Wollongong, NSW
"Your Station"/"Feel Good"
Monday 2nd November 2015 - 10-11am AEDT

“Do It Again” Pia Mia feat. Chris Brown
"Fire & The Flood" Vance Joy
"Joyride" Roxette
"Stitches" Shawn Mendes
"LoveStoned" Justin Timberlake
"Good For You" Selena Gomez
"Going To California" Led Zeppelin
"Hotline Bling" Drake
"Cake By The Ocean" DNCE
"Are You Gonna Go My Way" Lenny Kravitz
"Ain’t No Nobody" Felix Jaehn
"Budapest" George Ezra
"Figure It Out" Royal Blood

For those who don’t find the above playlists appealing, at least many parts of the Illawarra region can get the Sydney stations. :slight_smile:

also Yello - Oh Yeah and Maxi Priest - Wild World would look out of place on a MMM playlist anywhere! But then again Duncan by Slim Dusty has been played on a MMM Cold 30 before and you would never associate it with MMM anywhere, its Brissy predecessor FM 104 would have not touched it with a ten foot pole!:grinning:


#43

and both those need to be taken out the back and given a good talking to as well…

Thanks for the logs!

Good to see a few of the lesser known Aussie acts there eg. Machinations and Little River Band.


#58

If the regular Double J playlist were more like that, I’d tune in more often. A good mix of old and new in that log; Catatonia’s “Road Rage” is particularly impressive.

Awesome song IMHO which deserves commercial airplay here (and did receive it back in the day). I must disclose that I have the CD single in the collection. Those cardboard sleeves are not very durable though!
