In November last year I conducted a survey on your radio listening trends. Then I had a baby, then Christmas, NYE and a birthday. Then I just got lazy. But finally.... I'm getting around to sharing the results of that survey from November last year and if you're dorky like me you might find this a little bit interesting. You might want to look at the results from my previous survey that I published in March 2014 here as a way to track the changes in radio listener trends.
By volume, Hi FM are now no longer the popular choice amongst you, readers of this blog. I think it'd be a bit much to say this is truly reflective of all listeners in Oman, but certainly interesting as I have repeatedly asked the question to you over the years about which station you listen to the most and it's consistently been Hi FM, or Hi Oman as they are now calling themselves because they are now broadcasting across all of Oman (well across most of the population centres) at frequencies between 95.0 and 95.9 depending on the region.
Now, I asked you a number of questions, and the answers to each question are posted below:
So, its the Europeans, North Americans and Australasians that make all the dosh then. And you guys like 90.4 the most. I have to say that with the start of Adam Cole in the mornings on 90.4 and Marcus working behind the scenes at the station, its certainly seen an increase in popularity, Good for them!
And that's it! Thanks for filling in my survey - I'll want to do it again quite soon, Hi FM have brought on a lot of new radio presenters and we recently saw the departure of Kathy Cole from Hi FM, leaving Darren as the sole remaining presenter from Hi's launch a few years ago. Adam & Marcus are doing great work over at 90.4 and Chris & Neal & the team are kicking ass and taking names at Merge. It'll be interesting to see if they keep their lead when I do the next survey!
It'd just be really great if Oman FM could sort out their terrible website.
