Monday Morning Mediabase Update – Feb 22-28

Time to extinguish the flame, pull off the moose hats and stop trying to get Sid the Kid canonized. It’s time to unlace the skates and unbuckle the boots. It’s time to turn our backs on sports and turn to the serious business of radio.

Who’s at the top of the podium? Who has their personal best? Who went off course at the fifth gate? The biggest leap of the week goes to Adam Lambert’s WWFM that jumped a whopping 50 spots and over the top 40 HS line on AC. The song also hit a milestone in another discipline when it slid across the top 20 line on HAC giving it two finishes in the top 20 and 3 in top 40.

Over at the CAC cross-country track, Phil Stacey not only gave us the scoop on the behind the scenes shennigans (where the Idol PTB change the wax on your skis, break your poles and put fireants in your aerodynamic outfit) he also managed to get his pole over the line to finish 45th. Because Mandissa got lost out on the course (i.e. she went recurrent), that leaves Phil in possession of the top of the Idol podium in that format.

Also topping the Idol podium in their formats are Kelly (AC), Daughtry (HAC), Carrie (Country) and Kris (Pop). New personal bests for their current songs were Adam on 3 charts (Pop, HAC, AC), Carrie (Country), Danny (Country), Daughtry (Pop), Kris (AC) and Phil (CAC).
