Seattle listeners, according to the new PPM survey have stars in their ears, and music in their hearts. The news and politcs are way down there on the listenables.
Music radio rules ... especially Fisher's KPLZ (Star 101.5 FM). The market's all fuzzy tunes and almost no talk. Note public radio KUOW kicks news and news talk ass at #11 but still can't overcome the shit-kickers, the oldies and the Charmin soft rock; progressive robo-talk KPTK, and hard right talkers KTTH and KVI are nowhere to be seen in the top 20. Sports talk isn't much of a factor, re: the low standings of KJR-AM and KIRO-AM.
Thanks to Radio Schmoozer at Radio info, here are the 25-54 Average Persons rankings for the Seattle market. we figure if the giant Radio-Info can publish these numbers so can we.
