Don't Stop the Music

I'm determining what you can listen to on the radio.

That's right. Your favorite program may no longer broadcast based on a week-long diary that documents my radio listening habits for the Arbitron Ratings!

Well, it's not really that dramatic, but I was randomly selected by the research group to record my radio listening. The results, compiled with thousands of others, translates into ratings. These ratings, in turn, shape what radio stations decide to program.

KUNM rated high with me for the following programs: NPR's "Morning Edition" and local programming of "Train to Glory," "This American Life," "Singing Wire" and "Happy Feet."
