Mid-way through my week of radio station genre charts, I started to realize that “charts” isn’t really the most accurate way to describe the music genre signage that I’ve spotted at various radio stations. I guess it’s more appropriately a music genre categorization schematic or a legend or a key. Genre “charts” are more likely to be the top 10 lists that stations submit to CMJ or other publications.
In any event, I’ve seen many similar-looking genre category signs in my travels. Here’s another one. This “CD color code” sign is from community radio station WEFT-FM in Champaign, Illinois. I visited the station last summer during my trip to the Grassroots Radio Conference. Tomorrow I will feature one more music genre sign and then next week the radio station scavenger hunt will continue with a new item.
