In a first, home-grown artists accounted for the three most-broadcast acts on Australian radio and television last year. Based on playlist data from the 2003-04 financial year, the Top 100 Most Broadcast Recordings 2004 list was published today (Feb. 14) by the Phonographic Performance Co. of Australia.

Brisbane-based rock band Powderfinger topped the rankings, with four songs on the list. Last year's list-topper, Kylie Minogue, was second, followed by fellow pop singer Delta Goodrem. Aussie band Jet came in at No. 10.

"These results genuine show the strength of the local industry across a wide range of broadcast formats," says Stephen Peach, CEO of the PPCA and the Australian Record Industry Assn.

Robbie Williams, Matchbox 20, Christina Aguilera, Evanescence, Pink and Nickelback also made the top 10 list.

Other Aussie acts ranked in the top 50 were Pete Murray, Amiel, INXS, Alex Lloyd and John Farnham.

According to PPCA, the most broadcast song during the period was "Here Without You" (Universal Motown) by U.S. rock act Three Doors Down.
