We used Mediabase, a music industry website that tracks real time playlists of over 1,800 radio stations to figure out which pop songs played on Montana radio the most from 2001 to 2023! (No, you're not old. Mediabase just didn't have data from prior to 2001.)

We looked at data from local stations, past and present, that played Top 40, Rhythmic Top 40, Hot Adult Contemporary or Adult Contemporary formats to determine our list.
