iTunes Talk Radio Directory Research

iTunes Talk Directory Research part 2

Back in February I took a sample of activity and updatedness for the Talk Radio Directory available through users of the popular iTunes audio player.

As I said in my initial post back in February, I was thinking long and hard about applying to be listed in this valuable outlet for station discovery by new listeners.

Then as now I’m focused on known Live365 Talk Stations with a few non-Live365 ones thrown in for comparison while mostly excluding the mainstream media stations (though I think I’ll throw that in afterwards as a separate post). Among the things I noted then were “the number of dead / defunct stations or old information for current stations.” Sadly that hasn’t changed. There are still Dead Stations, some changes in bitrates (some complete changeovers I’m uncertain about the nature of) and I’m happy to say several seemingly newly added Live365 and non-Live365 stations.

Now, onto the …
