The Difference Between Streaming Music Online Vs. Broadcast Radio? Variety | USTelecom.org

Among an expanding array of entertainment options, the Internet has given rise to impressive libraries of streaming music conveniently accessible for consumers’ listening pleasure. A hallmark of providers, ranging from Pandora to Spotify to Rdio, is variety as well as the opportunity to discover less familiar or unknown artists. However, as a recent Wall Street Journal article reports, traditional radio is moving increasingly in the opposite direction, prizing repetition and a narrowly focused playlist above all.

 

According to the article, the top 10 songs in 2013 were played twice as much as the leading songs in 2003. For example, data from Mediabase finds that 2013’s most-played song, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” racked up 749,633 plays across 180 markets (or an average of 2,043 each day). By comparison, the most frequently played song in 2003, “When I’m Gone” by 3 Doors Down, received 442,160 plays over the year.

 

The reason for this increasing repetition comes down to data, which suggests that replaying top songs keeps listeners engaged. An array of market research has contributed to this conclusion — from Portable People Meters, which track selected listeners’ radio consumption habits to social media and listener surveys.

 

The key finding revealed that listeners typically tune out when they hear an unfamiliar song, so now there are special timeslots designated for the introduction of new music to ensure ratings remain uncompromised.

Brandon Mezanazi's curator insight, July 20, 6:29 PM

I see this scoop as the people who play the songs are playing the popular ones over and over because people become unfamiliar with a song they have never heard before, therefore hindering what music people actually would like to hear, or would like to find out about.

Riley Olin's curator insight, October 14, 10:50 PM

I personally don't see much of a different between streaming music and listening to the radio other than being able to choose exactly what music you are listening to when streaming. Radio is free to listen to and I think that it is a great idea to have the option of  subscribing to music streaming sites and paying a monthly fee to choose the music you would like to hear whenever you'd like. 

Manner Torris's curator insight, November 4, 4:26 PM

This article explains the similarities of streaming music and radio, and the absolute differences. Within this article they show the danger of streaming music online to the radio industry.
