This is a not entirely accurately-titled podcast, in that the whoring only takes place over a couple of songs at the tail end and does not at all influence any of the rest of the playlist.

What am I talking about, you ask? Well when I played a few trendy songs a few months back the listership of the podcast doubled over the course of a few weeks. I noticed this back when I was a bit more rigorous about the blog in the early days: if I reviewed high-profile new releases in the week of release it generated a large spike in readership.

So I’ve dropped a couple of very hype-friendly songs into the end of this podcast to see if that actually has any influence on anything at all. I found nice ones – ones I actually like, I mean – so don’t worry, your normally glittering listening experience will not be tarnished one bit. But bear in mind that this week we are all the guineau pigs in a silly internet hit-whoring experiment. Sorry.


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
