We met Paul Stipack, the mysterious creator of J Play, the music industry resource which showcases the artists and songs that are played on triple j radio in Australia.

Paul’s is an incredible story; since J Play’s launch in September 2006, he’s been lovingly listening to each hour and entering all the details into a massive database.

The J Play database currently includes over 40,000 songs, 11,000 artists and 15,000 playlists.

We found out how he built this huge library of statistics, what he’s voting for in the Hottest 100, and if he believes that there’s a triple j sound.
