Here's why: if you code all tunes whose artist has had three or fewer hits as "U," you'll likely discover that more than 30-40% of your active library is by unfamiliar names - in spite of the fact that you play nothing but "tested" music in all but your light current category!
- The very same listeners who often complain in perceptual studies of "too much repetition" or even "too many unfamiliar artists' music" actually rate a significant number of songs by "U" artists rather high and no specific tunes have any significant burn on them.
- Likewise, perceptually, listeners say they want a station that's very upbeat and yet in music tests several hundred ballads consistently research through the roof.
