Playlist Research documents the history of recorded music
and the various forms of media that deliver it to the masses, such as
and the internet. Playlist Research was created by radio programmer and now writer/researcher/historian Alex Cosper
in San Diego in 2007. It has grown to become a vast resource
of over 1,000 pages used by media and music professionals, university students, reunion committees and music fans.
The site was made with film and video producers, DJs and musicologists in mind. One of the main concepts behind the site is that it can help you assemble your own playlists for whatever purpose. Perhaps you need to put together a song list for an internet show, wedding, reunion, night club, school project or party. It's also helpful for cover bands to create setlists.
Whether you love mainstream or indie music, this site
has plenty of musical themes for you to explore. Playlist Research is constantly expanding with content and is dedicated to music's past, present and future. Thanks for helping it become one of the leading comprehensive music research sites in America.
