Programs

This radio station is well-known for its distinctive Adult Contemporary programming. Adult contemporary music has lush, soothing, and highly polished qualities, with an emphasis on melody and harmonies. It is usually melodic enough to capture the attention of the listener while remaining inoffensive and pleasurable enough to serve as background music. Songs in this genre, like most in pop music, are written in a basic format with a verse-chorus structure.

The music on AC stations is determined by the station’s direction. Some Hot AC stations sound eerily similar to Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR). Others are softer and more laid back, while still others lean toward Alternative stations in their music selection. There are others that are easily misidentified as oldies stations. MOR has given way to Adult Contemporary.

Stations also approach music programming in very different ways. Some radio stations focus solely on music. They play long swaths of music interspersed with commercials. Others take a more comprehensive approach, with frequent breaks from music to provide traffic, weather, news, or other program elements. Others will provide full service during rush hour and focus on music during the afternoon and evening hours.
