“To make the score valid we have to detect what’s normal
behavior,” Generali says. “That’s what M Score is about: a
look at how much they switch compared to what’s normal.”
The results are represented as an index ranging from
positive to negative. A score above zero means listeners
are less likely than usual to switch while a negative score
indicates more station switching than normal.
While M Scores are most commonly compared to callout,
MIKE STERN
Generali explains there is a distinct difference between the
EDITOR
two forms of research—M Scores are based on behavior
[email protected]
while callout is based on opinion.
“Most forms of research ask consumers what they think of a product or how
likely they are to buy it,” Generali says. “Very few are behavioral counting what
people are actually purchasing.”
PPM data does just that: measure people’s actual behavior and create a correlation between the song that’s playing and what people do about it.
WHAT’S IT ALL MEAN?
Just like any tool, M Score is only effective if you know how to use it. Rushing to judge a new song based upon its M Score too quickly can be a mistake,
In an attempt to keep programmers from jumping to conclusions there are
certain thresholds a song must achieve before it will receive an M Score. A
song has to be in rotation for at least four
weeks and has to receive at least six spins
per week. Even then, Generali preaches
caution. “It takes time to get used to a
song,” he says. “Programmers have to
be careful.”
He once again stresses that picking a
song is art, not science. “Adding a song is
really a contract between the PD and the
promo person. If you sign that contract,
give the song a chance.”
Instead of jumping the gun, Generali
suggests watching for patterns. If a song’s
PHILIPPE GENERALI
score is erratic, up one week and down the
next without any particular pattern, the
song is unreliable, much like an inconsistent baseball player where every trip to
the plate is an adventure.
Instead, it’s the songs that deliver consistent numbers over time that you
want in your lineup, according to Generali. “If the scores are great week after
week you can play it with your eyes closed.”

NOTABLE TRENDS
After watching a few years of M Score data roll out Generali has noticed some
notable trends, starting with the fact that listeners really are song-driven. “It’s
not so much about the artist,” Generali says. “When a new song from Lady Gaga
or Adele comes out you’d think people are going to be huge fans right away, but
it takes a little bit of time for listeners to get used to it.”
He says rhythmic artists tend to get stronger M Scores earlier than other
genres, sometimes even after just a few weeks. Generali isn’t entirely sure why
this happens, but he thinks it could be that fans of rhythmic acts have more
interest in learning the lyrics to a song than consumers of other genres where

there might be more emphasis on the beat or instruments.
In closing, Generali leaves us with a positive report for a recent single release.
Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” is “off to a great start.” Despite only 27,000 aggregated spins at the time of the interview, Generali says, “It’s getting a beautiful
reaction very early. Looks like another good one.”
OUTSIDE INFLUENCES:
LEAVE YOUR OFFICE, NOW!
Each week in Outside Inf luences we share a piece of advice you might not have seen
because it’s from someone outside of the world of radio and records.
“If you don’t know what’s going on, how can you be trusted to lead the
organization?”
That’s the question posed by author and leadership consultant John Baldoni
in a recent video about the value of getting out of your office and spending
time with your staff.
Baldoni says that when you do get out, avoid the dog-and-pony show and
“spend more time listening than presenting.”

The CHRonicler
THE IMPORTANCE OF
BEING ADELE
Among the things we’ve learned from Adele’s onewoman coup d’état of American pop: Top 40’s audience isn’t necessarily fixated on singles, we still love
a game (and tempo) changer, and it’s all right to cry
between all that partying.
Adele’s 21—which tops the Billboard 200 for a 17th
week, nearing the first anniversary of its release—is
quite likely the first album in the digital age that top
40 listeners have felt the need to own. The format’s
RICH APPEL
success with dance-pop has come at a price (make that
[email protected]
a lower price) as it has helped turn back time to when
listeners got music one song at a time. Adele’s now-three Billboard Hot
100 No. 1s (with a fourth certainly possible) have made the audience want
more Adele, including her debut album, 19—no small accomplishment.
Equity Communications’
WAYV Atlantic City, N.J., was
one of the first top 40s to add
“Rolling in the Deep” more
than a year ago. Equity PD Rob
Garcia explains: “Why [did] listeners respond to this song so
passionately? [Because] you
don’t only hear Adele’s music:
You feel it. With the sameness in a lot of music these
days, Adele was just what we
needed.” Michael Bryan, PD
at WXXL (XL106.7) Orlando,
Fla., another early believer in
“Rolling,” concurs. “We target
ADELE
women, and Adele speaks to
them at their core. It’s a different sound than we’re used to, but that’s
what makes top 40 great.”
It’s been a while, but we’ve been down this road before. If you remember
the ’90s, that was when Alanis Morissette also spoke to women (and like
Adele, to an ex-lover) with her mega-breakout hit, “You Oughta Know,” the
first of five from her Jagged Little Pill
album that teased the top of the chart
for more than a year. Around that
same time came the debut release
from Jewel, whose “Foolish Games”
may have been the sonic prequel to
“Someone Like You.”
You can go further back, to the days
of Archie Bell’s “Tighten Up” and
Bobby Goldsboro’s “Honey,” to show
that dancing and crying (respectively,
in the example above) have long coexisted on top 40. It just took Adele to
ROB GARCIA
return the latter to its rightful place.
“Saturday Night Live” picked up on
that in this sketch that aired as “Someone Like You” was hitting its stride a
few months ago. Is there a Kleenex tie-in looming? Discuss.
Perhaps most important, Adele’s success reminds us of top 40’s raison
d’être. Garcia reminds us that you can play Adele next to Pitbull, “because [while] both are different musically, [they are] equally loved. Playing popular music regardless of genre was and will always be the beauty
and uniqueness of top 40. I think a lot of people forget that these days.”

2 Describe the music mix a
l
listener can expect to hear.
Our powers right now are Rihanna’s
“We Found Love,” Bruno Mars’ “It Will
Rain,” Katy Perry’s “The One That Got
Away” and Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling.”
Mix shows are about flow and flavor, and
Spin does just that. We have the tracks
you are dying to hear with the OMG cuts
that bring you back to yesterday. In one
word, the format is unpredictable.
3 Describe what the format
l
So often in radio we complain about a lack of innovation and how everything has become so cookie-cutter, which is why you have to give credit to
Rob Austin and the team at Jamtraxx for stepping up and trying something
new called Spin-FM.
The all mix-show format recently debuted on the Davidson
Media Group’s brokered classic
hits WOLT (103.3), Greenville,
S.C. The format airs from 6
p.m–6 a.m. every day, as well as
in other blocks of time, depending on the day.
1 How did the idea for this
l
new format come about?
It came up at one of our weekly programming meetings between [JamTraxx Media president/CEO] Joe Del-
fin and I during a discussion about how
we can re-energize CHR radio without
reinventing the wheel. Spin is about taking that creativity of mix shows to the
next level.
sounds like.
We may not be that much different musically from WFBC, but where we are
different is in our presentation, which
includes airing fewer commercials.
The format is presented in a mix-show
fashion, which means the songs are
blended without the need for jingles.
Jocks will eventually be utilized, especially to make it live and local. In terms
of CHR, it’s about evolution. It now becomes another mainstream format that
can act as an alternative to a much more
urban rhythmic CHR, the dreaded iPod
or other digital devices/content delivery
methods.
4 What sort of non-musical
l
elements round out the
format?
Flow is a non-musical element to me,
because with a mix show it’s impera-
tive that it just has to f low. You don’t
program the song because you absolutely have to. You program it because
you need it to tell the whole story. There
are ways to massage and make things
work without having to fire a jingle or
anti-sweeper to connect one song to the
other on the station.
5 How is the arrangement
l
with WOLT structured?
Very simply. It’s a partnership between
two entities: JamTraxx Media and Davidson Media Group. It’s an effort by
us to try something new in a top 60
market on a frequency that has a lot of
history. We are very appreciative that
[WOLI-AM/FM and WOLT-FM operations manager] Craig Debolt believed
in our vision, as did the management
team of WOLT-FM.
6 Can this be a 24-hour a day,
l
full-time format?
Absolutely. That’s the idea. Everyone
is trying to develop something around
CHR and reinvent the wheel. I say, “Take
a step back and look at what you already
have and capitalize on that.” All it takes
is straight-up logic and love for methodology. We’ve already crashed the stream
server, which is a good sign, and the
phones have been off the hook. Someone noticed, and that’s great.

BULLET POINTS
by GARY TRUST, KEITH CAULFIELD
She’s On ‘Fire’!
Adele Doubles Up Atop
Billboard 200, Hot 100
It seems that every week there’s a new
Adele-related accolade to tout.
This week is no different, as her
album 21 logs its 17th week at No.
1 on the Billboard 200 with 95,000
sold (down 9%), according to Nielsen
SoundScan. 21 has now been No.
1 longer than any album since the
Whitney Houston-led soundtrack
to “The Bodyguard” wrapped a 20week run at No. 1 on the May 29,
1993, survey.
On the Billboard Hot 100, meanwhile, “Set Fire to the Rain” takes
over at the summit, dethroning Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” featuring
Calvin Harris, after 10 weeks. The
ascent makes history: 21 becomes the
first album by a single artist to top the
Billboard 200 concurrently with three
Hot 100 No. 1s.
Previously, lead 21 single “Rolling in
the Deep” began a seven-week Hot 100
reign the week of May 21, 2011, when
21 was in its sixth week in charge of
the Billboard 200. Follow-up “Someone Like You” crowned the Hot 100 the
week of Sept. 17, 2011. In the song’s fifth
and final week at No. 1 (Nov. 5), 21 returned to the Billboard 200 apex for a
13th frame.
With 21 at No. 1 on the Billboard
200 for another four weeks as of this
week, “Fire” (Adele’s third career Hot
100 topper) makes the set the first by a
single artist to have led the Billboard 200
concurrently with three Hot 100 No. 1s.
In the 53 years that the Hot 100
and Billboard 200 have co-existed, the
“Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack
is the only other album to have managed the trifold concurrent feat. The set
headed up the Billboard 200 while the
Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night
Fever” and Yvonne Elliman’s “If I
Can’t Have You” all reached No. 1 on
the Hot 100 in 1978.
(The spirit of ’78 is apparently alive
and well on the Hot 100. The “Glee”
cast’s remake of Olivia NewtonJohn and John Travolta’s “Summer
Nights” enters the chart at No. 88. The
original, from the big-screen adaptation
of the musical “Grease,” rose to No. 5 in
September 1978).
LEGENDARY: Etta James makes
a powerful impact on Billboard charts
following her death on Jan. 20.
On the Billboard 200, she nets her
highest-charting album ever as The Best
of Etta James—20th Century Masters:
The Millennium Collection rises 162-46
with 8,000 sold (up 149%). James’ catalog of albums sold 30,000 copies in the
chart’s tracking week, a 378% increase.
James’ famed single “At Last” was
her best-selling song of the week, shifting 63,000 and enabling its re-entry at
No. 29 on the Hot Digital Songs chart
(up 1,361%). For the week, James’ catalog of songs sold 118,000 downloads—
more than half courtesy of “At Last” —
up 1,091%.
James’ voice continues to be heard
on two current hits by way of a sample.
Her 1962 Hot 100 hit “Something’s Got
a Hold on Me,” which peaked at No. 37,
is woven into both Flo Rida’s “Good
Feeling” (No. 3) and Avicii’s “Levels”
(No. 68).
