The Social Countdown is a revolutionary way to chart popular music. It’s a daily countdown show, in the vein of old-school Top 40 countdowns. But instead of the traditional model, which is based on sales and radio play, RadioBDC is giving power to the people and the artists, allowing for an up-to-the-second measurement of the most popular music in Boston.
We use data from social media (Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube), music subscription services (Last.fm, Spotify), and up-voting on Boston.com, to reflect what the most popular music in the city is, instantaneously.
You choose which songs make it to air. You control the countdown. Vote, share, and listen to RadioBDC weekdays at 2 p.m. to hear the daily Top 10 countdown.
