WHAT WE DO
Our DAYTIME Program
PLAY-FM DAYTIME (5am-8pm) features mainstream dance music from around the world. The music mix can be described as happy and refreshing. PLAY-FM's daytime music mix is friendly and fun, making our listeners' workdays and commutes much more enjoyable. As an added bonus, PLAY-FM has a no-talk policy during most day-parts and is proud to have fewer commercial interruptions than any other station in the market. But perhaps most importantly, PLAY-FM's music is proprietary and mostly exclusive only to PLAY-FM. This means our listeners stay with us longer to hear the songs they like since no other station plays them or has acces to them. PLAY-FM always plays the freshest mix of dance intermingled with remixes of todays biggest hits!
Our NIGHTIME Program
WHAT WE DO
You know, the basic stuff
PLAY-FM NIGHTIME (8pm-4am) starting at 6pm each night PLAY-FM starts mixing in more undergound sounds and goes all out starting at 8pm when PLAY-FM flips the switch and plays EDM and underground Hip-Hop until 5am! The programming is wide open, featuring today's hottest DJs and electronic music artists like Hardwell, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Skrillex, Calvin Harris and Deadmau5, but also lesser known and more underground artists, both Hip-Hop and electronic that are still relatively unknown can be heard. Late Nights reach deep into the EDM domain covering a wide spectrum of genres including House, Progressive Trance, Dubstep, Breaks, Drum N Bass, Trap, and Techno and hard Hip-Hop!. Our core listeners love us and are loyal to our format and station.
