George Michael has been revealed as the artist to have most dominated the British radio airwaves during the last two decades. He picked up the PPL Award for the Most Played Artist on British Radio in the last 20 Years today at the Radio Academy’s annual ‘Music Radio’ conference, before a music and radio industry audience in Central London.

The full Top 10 of most played artists
1. George Michael
2. Elton John
3. Robbie Williams
4. Kylie Minogue
5. Bryan Adams
6. Madonna
7. Phil Collins
8. Cliff Richard
9. Mick Hucknall
10. Paul McCartney

“I can't believe it. I've only made six albums in 22 years so I don't know how this happened. I'm the luckiest writer on earth,” said George Michael on picking up his award.

“This chart is an interesting snapshot of which artists have most shaped popular culture, as the number of radio stations both competing for our attention and playing their material has spiralled,” said John Bradford, Director, Radio Academy.

Figures have been compiled in the past for individual years, but this is the first time the figures have been aggregated by the PPL to cover such a period.

The data is collected from national and local radio across the country, spanning over 600 BBC and commercial radio stations, including BBC Radios 1 and 2, Virgin, Capital, Magic, Heart and Kiss. It shows that despite the emergence of trends such as Brit-Pop and dance in that time, it is still the more melodic, established artists who have dominated radio dials. It also shows they are still male dominated, with only two of the most played artists being women. Despite the massive influence of the US on UK music, all but three of the artists are British.
