I've been following the Hot AC format since 2004, and listening to it since 2001. I have to say that I am disappointed in the direction its taking. I am lucky to have three "conservative" Hot AC stations that I get to listen to, but I still feel like the format has taken a dive for the worst. Hot AC is now burying possible core artists.
I feel like mid-2005 through mid-2006 was a great time for the format. The format was very independent at that time. Songs by Santana with Michelle Branch, Sheryl Crow, Collective Soul, Alanis, K.T. Tunstall, INXS, Five For Fighting, and Jack Johnson all became top 10 hits without getting much attention from CHR. These days, you almost have to be a big-time artist to get HAC ariplay without CHR.
This disappoints me...a song perfect for the format getting buried by a song that should have stayed over on CHR.
This next example doesn't disappoint me...it pisses me off. You're talking an artist with four top 5 hits getting passed for something that should not be getting any airplay on this format.
30 29 JAY SEAN Down f/Lil Wayne Cash Money/Uni Republic 2009 591 530 61 29 31 CREED Rain Wind-up 2009 574 539 35
Pretty soon these songs will be going top 20 on Hot AC, and then top 10. Then hearing golds by Gin Blossoms and Counting Crows will steadily go away. The format is still somewhat independent, but not for long.

f**k you man don't post in my threads anymore you wanna come in here and f**k them up posting that same stupidass emoticon every single time. Why do you always wanna do this shit man that's f**ked up this is a serious thread.
You can take Jay Sean's computer-enhanced CD and shove it your ass and take it back to CHR where it belongs. This is why the board is getting old to me now because I might make a stupid post but it's better than just a face.
