Poll: does chart action affect purchase decisions?


Our poll this week asks whether airplay or sales chart reporting has an impact on your music purchases.

Here at Bluegrass Today, we publish both a weekly and a monthly chart that measures how often new bluegrass songs get played on the radio. Other publications, like Billboard, publish charts based on sales reported to Soundscan, and still others measure how popular new songs are with radio programmers.

How about your personal buying habits – does chart action affect your decision-making?

As always, your additional comments are welcome.
