Manchester Rajar – Q1/2017

Although I have usually concentrated on London, back in the dim-and-distant past I occasionally featured other UK cities and thought that it would be worth doing it again from time-to-time. So here's a 'snapshot' of Manchester's radio stations are currently performing. Unlike London where all stations have the same (TSA) Total Survey Area it isn't the same with Manchester, which is served by both regional and local commercial stations, so it's not possible to do an hourly comparison. Instead I've done a breakdown ... Read more

London Rajar – Q1/2017

Here's how things are looking for the first quarter of 2017. Capital now has the highest commercial reach - and with more listeners than BBC Radio 2. Although it is up 510,000 on the previous quarter, it is actually down 46,000 year on year.

Fun Kids has done well with 46,000 listeners. However these are Adults 15+ and while Rajar doesn't measure children under 10, the station ... Read more

London Rajar – Q3/2016

It's Rajar time once again. This quarter covers the period from 27th June - 26th September. LBC's strong performance last time was thought to be because of the lead-up to the EU Referendum as well as the London Mayoral election, and as they have dropped back again this time this would seem to be the case. The station has maintained its domination of the late-night and overnight hours and has the highest share of London's commercial stations. Most other London stations are also ... Read more
