Top Played Albums at CFUV in 2022

Written by on 12/23/2022

It is once again that time of year! We have crunched the numbers and have our top played albums of 2022!

The way this works is new releases are sent to the station by artists, labels, etc. Once in our system they count as a “chart release” for 3 months. Each show that plays a song from this release it counts as a “spin.” For the end of the year we add up all the spins every release that they got in their 3 month windows to create a master top played of 2022.
