The Hotdisc chart is 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 because there are no terrestrial country
stations. The hundreds of country programmes on air
which we service 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 does not work here. Any Airplay
Chart you may see claiming to provide this service is
bogus and Hotdisc does not condone these charts at all.
They are misleading at best for the reasons stated.
The Hotdisc charts are 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 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 industry
professionals are flagging up as quality songs. This is
a very useful exercise as it is free of politics, hype
and rigging and done solely on merit!
