The Hotdisc chart is compiled from DJs and industry professionals’ ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Hotdisc 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 not here.
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 Hotdisc 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 tracks 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! We don’t care if a song is on a small label or backed by a huge label. If it is good enough it will be played in Europe. It is all about the quality of the songs and nothing else!
