Zeitfunk 2007

The Zeitfunk results are in! 2007 was a truly exciting year for PRX. More pieces were licensed by stations in 2007 than any previous year: over 8,000. PRX attracted 14,079 new members, and racked up over 1,000 new reviews.

Thousands of public radio fans helped us find three of the “hostiest” new talents through the Public Radio Talent Quest. And we re-launched the Generation PRX site so it’s more interactive and encourages social networking among the dozens of youth radio groups already participating.

Complete Zeitfunk 2007 Results

Some observations: As with last year, the top three or so in each category were very clear winners; after that, we had many tied places. Below you will see the top ten winners listed in most categories. Some categories only have two, three, or five places. We did this to accommodate the large gaps after clear winners, when there were more than four users or pieces tied for the same place.
We also added a few new categories this year: Most Favorited Pieces, Most Reviewed Youth-Produced Pieces, and Top Debut Indies. The Top Debut Indies are the producers and producer groups who joined PRX in 2007 and had the most pieces licensed.
