Premium | Why not only music genre, but also artist gender and tempo flow are important factors in music scheduling, and how all of these could work together even better.

Every experienced music director knows it. A great music log (and a successful music station) not just depends on which songs you play; it also matters in which order you play them! The right variety of genre, gender and tempo will help you to create music sweeps that will keep people tuned in. Following part 2a, now check out part 2b of our Format X-Ray series, where we share ideas for this, based on analysing an AC station's music log.
