Playlist Research documents the history of recorded music
and the various forms of media that deliver it to the masses, such as
non-commercial radio, including
college radio. 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.
