Famous Firsts #Happens On Monday

March 25th, 2024

Happy Monday! Hope you had an amazin’ weekend! We kickoff the first day of the week with Klein from KROQ/Los Angeles sharing Famous Firsts. 

More ratings love from last week’s batch of Nielsen February ‘24 PPMs. KNDD (107.7 The End)/Seattle Regional Brand Mgr. Christy Taylor shares: “The End is tied for number 1 persons 18-34 with a 7.8 share.”

Alternative programmers continue to buzz about The Marias “Run Your Mouth.” For the second-straight week, it’s the #1 Most Picked Song on New Music Discovery Picks. 

For the third consecutive week, there’s a new #1 song on the Alternative Chart as Cage The Elephant “Neon Pill” takes over the top spot. Congrats to RCA’s Gary Gorman & Q Prime’s Warren Christensen & team! Gorman says this is the band’s 11th #1 single!

  1. “Skin & Bones”
  2. “Social Cues”
  3. “Ready To Let Go”

  6. “Cigarette Daydreams”
  7. “Come A Little Closer”
