In reply to: Russ 's message, "Even with all those hits, Scott songs get virtually no airplay on the oldies stations" on Saturday, December 14, 07:09:50am

If it's one of those many stations that uses corporate algorithm-based "market research" lists, then you probably won't find many of his songs. If you find a knowledgeable DJ who digs up the oldies on his own, you're bound to hear some of Scott's hits sooner or later.

Market research oldies lists are not based on how well people like the song, but on whether they are more likely to listen to the commercials around it. The more boring the song, the more people hear the commercial.

It's based on personal observation. I've listened to oldies stations for years, and don't recall ever hearing one of his recordsRussSaturday, December 14, 06:29:34pm
