These lists are compiled and posted to the FOLKDJ-L list every month (since
October 1997).  An archive of past Top Album lists is available at
http://folkradio.org/airplay.html (on the official FOLKDJ-L web site).

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.  It
helps if the word "playlist" is in the subject.

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.  The top 50 albums are listed.
