File serves, actually.

"listenership" is a bitch to measure, and there's no reasonable granularity from Nielsen. So the proxy the radio station uses is "do people donate a lot during your timeslot" and "what's the streaming count."

They've shunted us to 11pm-2am which is really going to drive a lot of timeshifting. That file is raw off their server. I wanna see if it ticks up from plays outside their ecosystem (website and app). 'cuz then I can wrap it in my own player on my own site.

Yes, a reasonable radio station could answer these questions. This is not a reasonable radio station.
