Playlist
<Back to Last Page>     <Full Glossary>

Definition: The official list of songs a station is playing during any given week. In some formats, these lists are looked on as very important since they are submitted to trade newspapers and magazines and compiled to reflect national airplay and trends. In some other formats, like oldies, a playlist does not carry as much weight since it is not a reflection of current songs being played.
