The Hotdisc charts are compiled from DJs and industry professionals' ratings
of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot
work in Europe as there are no terrestrial country stations in this area. The hundreds of country shows are likely
to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant
in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it cannot work here.
The Hotdisc charts are therefore put together weekly using ratings supplied
by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months' editions of Rush Released. The scores are totalled
up and averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry.
The aim is to showcase the songs which the DJs and media people are pinpointing as top quality songs, which is
a very useful exercise, particularly to all our clients and DJs as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and
done on merit!
