RTRFM has announced their Top 100 Most Played Songs of 2015. 63 of the tracks are from WA, with 73 Australian artists in the countdown. The top twenty are entirely Australian, with only one artist from outside of WA featuring in it.

RTRFM is completely playlist free. Broadcasters handpick their own music on their shows, without any rotational algorithms or playlist programming supporting their shows.
