With the amount of song suggestions on here plus the already large playlist, it's unacceptable to be repeating songs that played 4 hours earlier.

I hope they don’t blow it by tight rotation, because there’s no need for that, with the amount of variety.

None of those are really recognizable songs. You did put a few well known ones but most are already in rotation.

I like your picks though, but radio stations need to play songs that the vast majority will recognize / were top 10-20 hits, or they risk losing listeners.

Combining the 3 or 4 existing playlists into one big one for less repetition would be a start...

They have been swapping songs in and out of their rotation endlessly... rather than do that why not just play them all?
