Quote from: Paul Douglas on November 14, 2018, 01:58:32 PMThe Pat Benatar song in question was a minor hit in the US and falls into the allocated time frame, surely a song from that long ago would be classed as being a golden oldie

Quote from: milky on November 14, 2018, 08:59:30 PMI think that Paul's point is that, if we only played the number ones, truly classified as "Gold", there would be a high rotation of a very small amount of music outpourings, and would be heavily biased towards those artists who were prolific at the time, such as the Beatles, Stones et al.Experienced and qualifiedProgram Directors will always sprinkle some "left of centre" tracks through the playlists to capture a market slightly left of centre of the true "Gold" list.
Quotesurely a song from that long ago would be classed as being a golden oldie
