104 and Mix celebrating the ratings

Canberra FM Radio have sent in their happiness with their recent ratings:

104.7 continues to dominate the Canberra radio airwaves according to the Neilsen Survey 2 results released
today. 104.7 has added another notch to the belt as Canberra’s number 1 most listened to radio station in an unbroken run of 12 Survey wins, whilst mix 106.3 has remained in second place across the workday with the ACT listening audience.

104.7’s breakfast show, Scotty & Nige, have the most number of people waking up with them and driving to work and school in the mornings, while across the day the station is consistently the number 1 most listened to.

Stablemate mix 106.3 has retained strong audience listening numbers across the day, holding the number 2 spot across the workday and in the all-important Afternoon Drive slot.

Canberra FM Radio Content Director, Drew Chapman, highlights that “Scotty & Nige are clearly the Capitals preferred Breakfast Show and their brand of fun and entertainment has certainly made a mark with the sheer number of loyal listeners that they have earned over the past 5 years.” Chapman says “mix 106.3 has continued to be strong across the workday and enjoyed great audience growth in Drive, Nights and weekends.”

Sorted.

Jeez, this tread is starting to make me feel like Grandpa Simpson.

No, vinyl is much cooler. Just pretend it’s through choice, not lack of knowledge. Use words like ‘tangible’.

But you do have to balance the turntable (or record player, as you may call it) on the passenger seat, which can be tricky. (-:

These dudes are tragic. I listen to ABC-FM for news and a bit of current affairs while commuting. If they’re broadcasting Parliament and the standard of debate is terrible as usual then it’s time for George Thorogood or Bob Marley or the Sex Pistols or whoever else is on the nearest CD.

I’d rather stab myself in the ear with a fork than listen to commercial radio with the fake banter, horribly forced laughter at nothing and terrible ads.

HAHAHA

You still listen to CDs.

I’ve just turned 50 and I’ve been buying CDs since they first arrived about 25 years ago, so I have several linear meters of them to go with several hundred vinyl LPs. And the only music playing device in my 10 year old car is a CD player, so that’s what I roll with. Shockingly old fashioned I know, but somehow the retro side of me enjoys it. 🙂

Yep there’s nothing that comes close to the resonance,the sound one gets from vinyl.Long live vinyl i say!

I’d just like to point out that smart phones can stream radio from anywhere on the planet, we are no longer limited to Canberran broadcast frequencies. Why subject yourself to such a dismal array when there is a cornucopia on offer?

On a tangentially related point, I have had geologists tell me triple j contains a hidden signal they use for determining their location more accurately than GPS. Fiendishly difficult to find anything about it on the net though, plenty on other countries doing it, but nothing on Australia. Still, cool to think there are signals hidden in the music.

Len Price 3 or Graham Day and the Gaolers.

I haven’t heard of either of these outfits, but I’ll check them out.

I miss when Wil Anderson and Adam Spencer used to do JJJ in the mornings. Must’ve been ten years ago, but God, I cannot stand 104.7.

Doesn’t the photo look exactly like what you’d expect 2 Canberran morning show hosts to look like?

Point taken- but unfair comparison, Adam and Wil set the bar so high it is unlikely to ever be bettered..Even Mikey and Helen were better than what passes as brekkie/drivetime these days..Although, Scotty and Nige are still the top of today’s pile.

For something different, give Raw FM a go. It’s dance/techno/rap/R&B/dubstep style music and isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but not only is it great (very much in my opinion) music, there’s no news, less ads and no self absorbed chatter. It’s really about the music.

I flick back to FM104 occasionally and the music is often not that different when there is any and JJJ was wonderful in the 90s, but sometimes feels more like a folk radio station these days!

People buying John laws CDs in petrol stations are best ignored

Indeed. This album cover is…um…ah…(and although I hate people who do this) indescribable. I have never listened to the contents.

that is gold.

cds are inefficient and not a good way of listening to music. Wont belong before they go the way of the cassette.

Vinyl, while still ineffecient, some peeps still claim to have better sound quality than digitel and i doubt they will go away for a while.

Digital music sales only exceeded physical format sales for the first time this year.
Admittedly once you take into account illegal music sources, digital has probably outstripped physical formats for a lot longer. But CD and vinyl aren’t dead yet, nor rare.

I wasn’t suggesting CD’s are rare – I’d buy one over digital music any day. But I don’t listen to them 😛

They are ripped to MP3 and then put away.

I’ll take your fork and raise it to a sharpened chopstick in each ear.

Though my remedies are Bach and Beethoven and jazz.

It always annoys me when 104.7 claim how awesome they are by winning the ratings again. They don’t have any competition! And by competition, I mean another “normal” commercial station that plays modern/popular/top40 type music and doesn’t cater to a particular group (ie, golden oldies, easy listening, talk back).

At least Sydney and other places have Today FM, MMM, Nova (I think they all still exist, but you get the picture anyway) to compete in the “mainstream commercial” type category!

Bigsy has destroyed that brekkie show, and as for Knuckles I still don’t understand her contribution to Scotty and Nige’s show..she is an annoying nobody.
