DIY Radio: Andy Vale (20th September 2012)by DIY
Lightspeed Champion, Green Day, Frank Ocean, Ezio, Explosions In The Sky and more.
And I misspelt Iron Maiden - Paschendale, which was silly.
True. It's hard to get any stone cold truths in this matter, especially when there are so many variable that are impossible/difficult to measure. Such as, how many people pirate/stream an album before buying it? Furthermore, how many people found an artist illegally or on Spotify, then paid big bucks for merch & gig tickets.
The point was originally more about the lack of bredth in the music played on major/mid-sized UK radio stations. But again, what could be argued is that the large number of regional commercial stations all playing the same stuff may distort those figures to an extent.
It's a twisted web. Anyway, thanks for listening :-)
