    "Brave" was fine the first 93 times...now, I am a little annoyed of it.

    The Hot AC were I live actually calls itself "Today's Hit Music Station". Power rotations are also very popular on the station, like hearing "Timber" every hour. Interesting because both CHR's near me go by "All the Hits" or "1# Hit Music Channel".

    Only a few token 90's songs ever get airplay, usually Alanis or Dave Mathews.

    If this is the Josh Groban song, I heard it on standards radio and was annoyed the first time.

    I think today's Hot AC has pretty much morphed into a CHR recurrents format. Instead of the exclusive singer songwriter artists & 90s gold, Hot AC is now basically a format based on big hits that CHR has already broken a few months earlier.

    No, Sara Barailles. Her "Brave" song has been played too many times.

    Oh, well, this is true of anything by Sara Bareilles in my opinion.

    Brave did well because of award show appearances and was used in TV commercials and shows. The potentional of going from recurrent to gold is minimal. Was not.a very strong selection for Airplay.

    This song has done well. It was a slow start, but is doing well now.
