The Puzzle of “Most Popular” Music Lists

Here at ARIA we are very focused on playing you the music you like - in other words, music that is "most popular".  That is a simple-seeming objective, but how to actually do exactly that?  What music do you (and our other listeners) like?  And, beyond that (not) simple question, which pieces of music do you most like, which do you moderately like, and which are ones that, although you […]

Half a Year of Music

I noticed an interesting thing - if we were to play every track now in our online library, it would take 182 days, 12 hours, 3 minutes and 30 seconds.  That's about as close to half a year as you'll ever get.  With a current count of 50,235 tracks, that also represents an average track length of 5 minutes 14 seconds.  Statisticians will appreciate that the standard deviation around that […]

More Progress than Meets the Eye

A month ago we were proudly telling you we had 49,739 tracks in our database.  It seemed that our first stage goal of 50,000 tracks was (literally) 99.5% achieved.  But it has taken the entirety of the last month to, kinda sorta, break through the 50,000 objective, due to an unexpected refinement. We used a program to detect duplicate tracks, and it came up with a dismaying long list of […]

Quality vs Quantity – Where to Find a Balance?

We have been continuing to grow our library since our last report to you in August, and now have 49,739 tracks in our database.  I'm sure you can imagine how excited we'll be when we break through the 50,000 count in the next week or so. But I'm not sure if that is a cause for celebration or not!  We are finding ourselves moving too far towards the quantity side […]

Moving Steadily Forward

We continue to make exciting "behind the scenes" progress prior to launching our new classical music online streaming radio service. Our music library has grown from 25,000 tracks, and now we are just under 31,000 tracks (30,940 to be precise). That is good, and many of the latest 6,000 additions are of music we don't already have several versions of in our library, so we are building up a wider […]

An Update on our Progress

Are we ahead of schedule?  Or behind?  For that matter, is there a schedule at all - and, the biggest question of all, are we progressing and moving closer to launching our popular classical music streaming service? Leaving the first few questions alone and choosing the last question; we're pleased to let you know that we are indeed moving forward towards a service launch. We have all the hardware in […]
