I’ve been surprised, as I know you all have, to hear that AC stations have included so many of my Christmas recordings in rotation this year. Much more than in past years actually.
The proof of this rotation play is in the numbers and today, Brian Mansfield at Idol Chatter posted his weekly list of the most-played songs from Idol stars. The following numbers are the total spins from last week.
CARRIE UNDERWOOD 19449
KELLY CLARKSON 8165
CLAY AIKEN 4281

Moonhead is a fan that posts at CH. She has been following the radio play for many years. The following chart is exciting to see. Radio spins are amazing this Christmas season!!
Are you ready to contact your AC radio station?? Even though I am from California, the state of No Clay Play, I am ready to contact the AC stations near me. It just might work and helping Clay is something I hope I can do.
