I attended the FM USA conference at NXNE. During the event we were to give tracks rating from 1-10 and the panel, who were from American Triple A radio stations rated them as well. Triple A station stands for Adult Album Alternative which is usually on the edge of mainstream pop and rock and a mix of indie, alternative rock and alternative country, jazz, folk, world music and blues. They gave insight/input as to if they would put the track on radio or not from just the one hearing and why or why not. Here are the tracks that were featured during the conference. What do you feel about them?
