If I play Hotel California every day for 40 years, and then do a music test with my core listeners and they tell me it is one of their top, top favorites, I'd think about playing it twice a day!

When you actually talk to real listeners about "variety" it is never about lots and lots of songs... it is about hearing only songs each listener likes a lot and not hearing ones that they don't like.

"That station does not have good variety."

"Why?"

"They play too many songs I don't like."

(Quote from a one-on-one interview comparing the classic rock station with 1,800 songs with the station I programmed that had 500.)
