Slightly off topic, but I get a daily e-mail from Alan Cross, check this out, ouch:

Weekly Music Sales Report and Analysis: 23 May 2014

I’m a bit late again, but this time my excuse is that I’m on the other side of the International Date Line this week, which means I have no idea what day it is.

Let’s start in Canada where year-to-date album sales are now down 7% from 2013, which marks and improvement from where things were last week. CD sales continue to suck (as they will for the rest of their existence), down 8% from last year.  Digital albums are behind by by 8% and digital tracks are soft by 12%.

 

So with digital sales even down so much, it means that either more people are finding ways to steal it, or they are using streaming random play services (where the artist makes between 1/2 of one cent and 8/10 of one cent each time you hear it) or a subscription service where the artist makes a bit more.

 

It's amazing how fast things are changing,

 

The US numbers are worse, where they have access to more streaming services than we do:

 

Looking on the US side of the border, year-to-date album sales are down 16% from this point last year, as are digital album sale.  Digital tracks are down by 12% from 2013.

Jack's Wheel of Meat contest has been absolutely hilarious to listen to. It's even lead to a petition against the station and the contest by a group in Croatia, giving Jack the idea to add a vegan option of a frozen bag of vegetables if someone prefers to win that instead. Classic.

Know it all.

^ what qualifies as a listener? Tuning to the station for longer than x amount of time?

For at least 15 minutes in the past 7 days.  And I left out the out-of-town listenership (ie. Vancouver listeners to Vic stations or internet listeners outside of the CRD.

Thanks! I added to the the metric on the Q then :P. Is anyone surprised at these numbers?

Well, indirectly you did, just by living here and allowing for the extrapolation of the numbers to the un-sampled.  But if you did not fill out a diary back in September and October, you did not directly add to the results.

I still don't believe metrics gathered that way are very accurate.

They've been doing it for decades, it's proven.  Not even a little shakier now with other ways to get music, they have never tried to measure your ipod music listening vs. your radio listening.  Just like they did not measure your tape or cd listening before.  

 

I know nearly a dozen radio salespeople in this town.  None of them doubt the stats, not one has ever suggested there is any inaccuracies or bias.  And this is while they try to sell me airtime.  I've made Victoria radio buys for probably 15 years, for three different companies.  They will pick them apart to show them in the best light (ie. your Zone or Kool salesperson will show you their impressive 19-24 stats, if that's your market).

How many 19 year olds are filling out radio diaries? 

 

Are radio stations that stream online using web-listenership in those metrics?

They correct for this.  They are professional statisticians, they know what they're doing.  The most important thing, they are trusted by the industry.

There is a reason major markets are switching to PPM.

Cheaper (to calculate results, not collect them) is one reason.  Faster and even real-time is the main reason.  All PPMs have exposed is higher-than-anticipated TV viewer-ship in group environments, more specifically live sports at a bar or restaurant.  Other than that, their results have not varied from diaries.

I've done the diaries three times I think now over the last decade or two. Everyone in the household marks down their listening habits. The last time my diary was pretty skimpy because I really only listen to classic rock for a few minutes if I'm driving or CBC for half an hour or so in the morning and evening.

The margin of error is still tricky with both.

Having said all this, an experienced radio buyer does not go into the purchase only taking the numbers into account.  If he or she has purchased in the same market before and truly understands sales results for the company they are buying for, the numbers are a small factor.  I guess a national buyer leans more heavily on the numbers provided.

Was looking  on 103.1 Jack FMs website and noticed no more Ian Slipp on the morning show.

Looks like he was let go 2 weeks ago.

He was a nice guy, but that's the radio business.
