Top 2012 songs and artists on Atlanta radio: Katy Perry, Trey Songz, Flo Rida, Kenny Chesney

Merry Christmas all! Here is my annual compilation of the most played songs and artists from Atlanta radio stations in 2012, courtesy of Mediabase 24/7, which tracks this info.

But once a station format is dead, all that info disappears so we have nothing on Dave FM, Project 9-6-1 or Atlanta’s Greatest Hits. Smaller stations such as Streetz 94.5 and 98.9/The Bone are not tracked, nor are those outliers such as South 107.1 or Joy 93.3.

Still, if you are fans of any of these stations, these song titles and acts will be very very familiar.

Trey Songz with Kelly Rowland in the video for "Heart Attack," the most played song at V-103 in 2012.

Why is domestic violence/abuser Chris Brown still relevant? Speaks volumes about the American people.
