So I guess their "Holiday Lite until New Year's" experiment if a few years ago didn't work out well?|

Its just not the typical thing to do. |
Their sister WRIT in Milwaukee went back to normal format at Midnight. Their Christmas competition WLDB is seemingly staying Christmas til New Years Eve like they did last year.

The music is different? This seems like the exact list of songs I heard on 103.5 HD-2 last night between 8 and 9 pm.|

What I meant was not the same songs at the same time. |

Overall, 93.9 is now how it sounded in the 90s, plus 2000s and early 2010s AC hits. |
I asked this in one of the earlier threads. When 93.9 switched back as Lite FM (mainstream AC) after being My 93.9, what was their core sound and their signature artists during that period?
When they were 80s/90s/today' variety, whenever 93.9 played any 80s, it tended to be stuff like Journey, Survivor, or Bon Jovi, correct?

It's an interesting listen, at these early stages. Time will tell in the next few weeks how deep they dive.
Will it be the same 300 - 400 songs on rotation over and over again?
Are they positioning themselves as 80's, 90's, and today's Relaxing Favorites (what decades)?
Any programming / tweaking being done locally, given the somewhat niche format?
In terms of marketing, they should dig up their "turn on the lite" from years ago and build that into their vision... with the light bulb, "the ding", the switching sound, etc. In other words, fully implement the heritage calls.
Other thoughts and impressions?

I listened on the road today during their 2 hour nonstop. Really good variety. Some golden nuggets from the 80s plus a few motown goodies. Definitely a different pace and sound. Enjoyed it but had to get dance going while driving, got sleepy! Relaxing works.😴|

So is the format "AC" though there are no currents, |
or Soft Oldies?
Honestly, I remember and LIKED "WLAK 94FM" as it was a constant vs the current tweaking/flipping of 93.9 every few years.

I would call it Soft AC for sure.|
