This is an extended version of the cumulative table. It enables you to monitor an artist's airplay more precisely and in real time. If a track receives four plays on a radio station, it will appear four times in the live feed but only once in the cumulative table.

The live feed lets you dive into a song's latest plays, whereas the cumulative table offers a consolidated view of the artist or song plays.

Here is how to read the live feed table you can find in the airplay section of an artist's profile:

  • The Song column is the track that has received plays

  • The Station column is the radio station that played that track

  • The Radio reach column is the sum of followers that the radio station has across different platforms (Instagram, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube accounts)

  • The Date/hour column corresponds to the last time the station played that track. Hours are on the time zones the stations are on

  • The Duration column is how long the track has been played for that play

  • The Country column is the country that the radio station comes from

  • The Time zone column corresponds to the station's time zone

To go the extra mile, you can click on any entry from that table to access the right panel. This panel offers complementary information on that radio play, such as release date, record label, past plays on that radio station, etc.
