Live365 (where Acoustic Pie Radio is hosted) uses a formula based on listeners’ votes and how many times a song has played to calculate the Top 20. The formula looks at how many times listeners clicked BUY (this is very heavily weighted) or WISH or UP or DOWN and also how many times people changed the station during each song. If the song has not played many times (say, if it’s new to the rotation that month) it has a slight advantage in the formula.
This month, newcomer Ian Axel grabbed the no. 1 AND the no. 4 spot in his first time on Acoustic Pie. You should go see this young man perform. He’s simply riveting ~ a natural performer and stunning musician.
A nice showing of San Diego artists this month! Jakob Martin at no. 7, Coco & Lafe (no. 14) and Eve Selis at no. 20. We are incredibly lucky when it comes to songwriting talent in this town.
Thanks for voting and listening!
