One-Stop Browsing for Your Convenience
Click on Home for our U.S. dance radio directory. Click on Radio Megamix to see the most popular songs on dance radio. We have compiled below a set of YES tool bars for all the dance radio stations that are currently monitored by YES Networks (yes.com), a service that updates a station’s real-time playlist for the past 24 hours (there’s a 15-minute delay between the time a song airs and when its ID appears).
Companies such as Nielsen BDS and Mediabase also monitor radio airplay, but they choose not to share their real-time data with the general public, missing out on an opportunity to turn their service into an advertising platform a la Google, Yahoo, and craigslist.
Note that some songs may be incorrectly identified. For instance, they may be attributed to the DJs who put together compilation albums instead of the actual artists. This is a clerical error—not a problem with the audio-matching technology.
Beware that if a song is not in the database, however, it will simply be ignored. It’s understandable that no airplay-tracking service could possibly recognize every song on the radio all the time. Any automated system would be stumped by a mix show; it’s a good thing radio stations have begun to publish their mix show playlists. Instead of leaving an imperceptible gap in the time line, YES Networks should clearly tag any failed identification—it’s worse to gloss over missing data.
