CJLO Top 100 of 2012


Looking over this compilation of all our charts over the year, being a numbers guy, I gave a quick look at some stats:

  • 62% of the Top 50 of 2012 are Canadian artists
  • Nearly 1/4 of the Top 50 of 2012 are Local artists
  • Close to 20% of the Top 50 of 2012 are Metal/Loud Rock artists
  • Nearly 1/3 of the Top 50 of 2012 are Hip Hop artists
  • A staggering 88% are on independent labels!

All in all, it's pretty indicative of what we're striving to do here at CJLO, and that's to provide fresh, new, diverse, and underground/independent content to the airwaves—a true alternative to the mainstream Top-40 radio stations that usually litter a metropolis' radio band. Hi fives to all our broadcasters and programmers and music directors who continue to keep the music fresh on CJLO 1690 AM's airwaves, to all the hardworking artists and labels who fuel our playlists, and more importantly to all our listeners, supporters, and volunteers who are the backbone of this station and who make what we do relevant and worthwhile. See you all around Funding Drive in April (hint hint, hehehe).

Happy New Year from CJLO and it's staff and volunteers! We're looking forward to providing your ears with more good music for the new year! Hi-fives.

Omar Goodness / Head Music Director and host of "Hooked on Sonics" (Thursdays 6-8pm EST)
