Mix 96 Soundcheck:
Mix 96 recognises that playing the favourite music of our listeners is paramount to the success of our music mix. For this reason, we have a Soundcheck to which listeners can join via the website by clicking here. On a regular basis, listeners who have signed up will be invited by an email to take part in a music survey where they get to hear the ‘hooks' of a selection of songs. A member of the Soundcheck has the chance to say whether it is a song they love, like or dislike and are also asked as to whether they feel the songs are heard too much or too little. We react accordingly by using this data to decide whether certain songs should be played or not, or whether their rotation should be reduced, or indeed in some instances, increased.
