Doc: What's up, Doc? Hi, Doctor. Thanks for answering my last request. Once again, a time for other questions.

1. In your research studies have you ever found if there are people who only listen to a station because of its Morning Show? If so, is it too many people?

2. In case this was true, have any of your research studies shown how should the be music that you play in a CHR/Top 40 radio station? Should it be only the hits of the moment? Should you lean to more familiar recurrent songs? Is this a good moment to expose a new song? Or simply you must play the same percentage of new/current/recurrent songs as in the rest of the day? - Maria


Maria: Thanks for writing. I have simple answers to your questions. First, the only way to find out how many listeners tune in only for a radio station’s Morning Show is to a conduct an independent research study to track the listeners. Some studies I have seen show that the number is very small, but there are also other studies that show that the percentage is large.

Second, once again, only an independent research study of the specific radio can provide the information about the type of music a radio station should play in the morning.

I’m sorry I can’t give you more specific information, but the only way to find out your answers is to ask the listeners.
