The difference between the two different singles playlists is the rotation pattern for library records and non-asterisk records, at the bottom of the playlist. The playlist used between 7PM and 5AM has an additional asterisk position each hour, which is to be used for positioning one album cut per hour as a non-asterisk record during these hours. This week, the album cut playlist will be attached to the singles playlist which has the additional hourly non-asterisk positions." Unless otherwise noted, songs without a number assigned to them (excluding LPs) are in an in-house category labeled "New Library."
