Do you know what the most exciting thing that happened at college radio this week was? It was that at least 3 different stations told me they start classes next week! FALL IS ALMOST HERE!!! Welcome back those of you that are on the way back. You have been missed.
To catch you up on what has happened this summer... Tame Impala has been #1 the whole time... Ok that is not true. Thee Oh Sees have been #1 as well. Alabama Shakes, Hot Chip and Bully each had some time as well.
As I thought would happen last week the top five remained the same but in a different order. I would not be surprised to see it stay this way for the next few weeks although I could see a different record or 2 make an appearance in the top five. The thing is that 4 of the top five records right now could have a shot at #1. And there appears to be no record currently out of the top five that would have enough juice to challenge. ( see last weeks post for clarification on who should and should not be pushing for #1)
It will be interesting to see what happens as everyone comes back to school. I think stations will gravitate naturally to those bands they know, Tame Impala, Mac Demarco, Wilco should all continue to gain. So can one of those records gain more to dethrone Tame Impala?
The transition from Summer to Fall or from Fall to Spring usually benefits the newer records. So keep an eye out on those records going for adds this week, next week and going forward as those tend to have an easier time than the older records.
I am excited for the Fall though! It is almost here!
