AccuRadio, one of America’s fastest growing music webcasters for most of 2015 has shared their listeners’ (and programmers’) favourite cuts of 2015. AccuRadio curates over 975 channels of rock, pop, R&B, jazz, country, classical, pop standards and more, targeted at the 45-64 demographic. They have over a million listeners, who tune into AccuRadio’s mobile app and radio each month. Listeners are largely from the U.S., Canada and Japan.
From January to June, Triton Digital’s Webcast Metrics Top 20 year-over-year growth tracking ranked AccuRadio in the top spot, measuring Average Active Sessions. AccuRadio also regularly ranks highest with Average Time Spent Listening (ATSL) of all personalisable radio brands. AccuRadio’s top five “Most-Played” and “Highest-Rated” tracks from 2015 are all listed in their main website, plus their programmers’ top choices, listed under “Editor’s Picks.”
Adele’s Hello has indeed charted for the December across radio brands with Fetty Wap’s Again and Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk! high on the R&B top-rate list. The Chemical Brothers managed to garner the top spot under the top-rated tracks for independent rock with Lampshades on Fire by Modest Music on the most-played tracks under the indie rock genre. Florence + the Machine’s Ship to Wreck have also managed to be on the same list.
Taylor Swift proved popular when she appeared in four out of the twelve months under the ‘Most-played songs by month’ for her singles Blank Space (Jan), Style (Mar), Bad Blood (Jul) and Wildest Dreams (Oct).
