Some love the song to be Australian others will prefer it when it is international. It’s a choice of radio stations will try all to satisfy their listeners.
Playing foreign music makes radio stations expand their brands to reach a larger audience. Mostly young listeners will love Hip-hop songs from the US, the UK and other regions of the world. In Australia, some radio stations are known for playing international music most of the time.
Radio stations are required according to the code of Practice to play 25% Australian music within the 6 am and midnight time frame. The likes of Fox FM of Southern Cross Austereo, Triple M, Nova, Smooth FM, and others are expected to comply with this rule.
Nova 100 Melbourne Tops the radio Station that played the most international Music
Though this is not portraying a positive light because it goes contrary to what is required by law, Nova 100 located in Australia has the overall record for the radio station that played international music the most.
In June 2017, the radio station recorded the lowest rate of Australian music played on the station. Only 7% Australian music was recorded for a particular week in June according to a study carried by Chrissie Vincent, Collarts’s head of entertainment management.
In the result gathered between 5th and 11th June 2017 and within the 6 am and 6 pm time frame, only a total of 68 Australian songs were played by Nova. On the international end, the radio station has an intimidating record of 437 American songs, 134 songs from the European Union, 297 from the UK, 77 songs from Canada while 20 came from New Zealand within the same period.
Arguably, Nova 100 Melbourne will go down as the radio station to go listen to international songs for those who love more of it.
