A new radio format called Quickhitz has been making waves online in the last few months. The format has been created for stations that specialise in Chart Hit Radio (CHR). Developed by Sparknet Communications, the company behind JACK fm Quickhitz promises ‘Twice the Music’ by editing popular songs so that radio can play twenty-four tracks per hour.
A radio station in Calgary, Canada has adopted the format and they say they are getting a mixed reaction from their audience. Some listeners say that they love listening to a station where they can hear six or seven hit songs in just 15 minutes, whilst others say that they don’t need their music edited down to satisfy short attention spans.
Hillary Hommy, Vice President of the company that developed the format said in an interview “A lot of people can’t detect the music has been edited,” and that stations in the UK are set to introduce the format later this year.
Here at Music Business School we would be surprised if stations like BBC Radio1 or Radio2 adopted the format. However it might come to stations like JackFM that appeal to fans of the CHR Format.
