Compiled by Richard Gillmann from FOLKDJ-L radio playlists
Based on 104920 airplays.

Here is the top airplay list for the year. I have gone back and reprocessed all the playlists submitted to FOLKDJ-L in 1998 and come up with a top 250 list for album airplay. By going back to the original playlists some albums which never appeared in a montly Top 50 list may appear here in the annual list.

The process of compiling the Top Albums list is automated (I do hand correct
some obvious errors and typos).  The results are based on playlists posted to
FOLKDJ-L during the calendar month.  I wrote a pair of programs that work
with the Eudora email program's filtering feature.  One program parses each
playlist as it comes in and adds it to a spreadsheet.  The second program
processes the spreadsheet into a readable report.  Playlists have to include
artist, song and album name (label is optional) and be in a reasonably
regular format for my program to be able to parse them.  My programs wind
up identifying about 60% of the songs actually posted.

The Top Albums list is sorted in descending order by number of plays recorded
for each album.  Within an album, the number of times each track was played
is shown.  If a single DJ is the only one mostly playing an album, the count
of plays is adjusted downwards; otherwise the raw counts are used.
