These lists are compiled and posted to the FOLKDJ-L web site every month
(since October 1997).  The archive of past Top Album lists is also available
at (the official FOLKDJ-L web site).

The process of compiling the Top Albums list is automated (I do hand correct
some obvious errors and typos).  The results are based on playlists posted to
FOLKDJ-L during the calendar month.  I wrote a pair of programs that work
with the Eudora email program's filtering feature running under Microsoft
Windows NT.  One program parses each playlist as it comes in and adds it to
a spreadsheet.  The second program processes the spreadsheet into a readable
report.  Playlists have to include artist, song and album name (label is
optional) and be in a reasonably regular format for my program to be able to
parse them.  My programs wind up identifying about 60% of the songs actually

The Top Albums list is sorted in descending order by number of plays recorded
for each album.  Within an album, the number of times each track was played
is shown.  If a single DJ is the only one mostly playing an album, the count
of plays is adjusted downwards; otherwise the raw counts are used.  The
top 50 albums are listed.
