Gooood morning everybody, it’s that time again to bask in the glowing light that is the Active Rock chart. We only have 8 more reporting weeks after today- time certainly does fly in this business. We start off with Nickelback “Edge Of A Revolution” celebrating its second week in the number one slot. The nearest competition is Slipknot “The Devil In I” moving from 6 to 3*+64 spins. 320 spins separate number three and number one, but expect Slipknot to achieve that goal of another number one active rock record in the next few weeks. Stations leading the way include Music Choice, KMRQ, WYBB, KQXR, WKRL, Octane, WXNR, KHTQ, WXQR, KILO and more. Continue Reading »
