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.
