April Radio Update: Now Over 3000 songs!

I'm back for another radio update. Things have calmed down a bit in April after our viral spikes from Imgur and Tumblr, but those posts have brought the radio a healthy collection of fresh regulars and our overall user base has grown nicely. We've continued to work our way through the user request list, adding another 160+ songs to the collection this month. Our selection of songs has now grown to over 3,000! We've also brought on some extra help, a new volunteer to assist with reviewing new music. Serious is the latest member of our team, and he's to thank for some of the newest additions such as Aladdin and Zelda: Majora's Mask.

We've made some minor tweaks and bug fixes, nothing major to report on the development front. There are some changes in the works to how the request system restrictions work, to try and further expand on preventing songs from being played too often and to keep the radio fresh. The script that picks the random non-requested songs has been tweaked and now ensures the less played songs are brought forward and given some much deserved air time.

Let's shake up the request list for May, consider requesting some fresh new tunes! Here are our Top 25 requested tunes from April:

1. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn
2. Portal 2 - Want You Gone
