Yesterday’s JNLR figures threw up some interesting contrasts in the aul’ 25-44 year old age-block when it comes to the two national music stations, 2fm and Today FM.. Please note, we are just talking about national station v national station for the purpose of this – no spinning from the locals, if you don’t mind.
