Richard Gillmann compiles monthly surveys of international airplay on the folkdj-l listserve. Archives of these can be
found at <http://folkradio.org> Richard's complete lists can be found on his own website
at <http://www.nwfolk.com> and I have used this source for the information above.
Richard created a couple of programs to analyze all playlists posted to the Folkdj-l list. These programs require that playlists be submitted in a particular format to be counted. Because of this he estimates his programs pick up 60-80% of the total airplays posted. Richard tallies the most popular albums and songs as well as total play for individual performers. As can be seen, Richard cuts off his album and artist lists at 10 plays and the songs list at 5 plays.
Once again, Richard has consented to my pulling Canadian stats from his lists for which I offer a grateful tip 'o the hat.
