JACK fm is a music radio station which complements existing local commercial radio by appealing mainly to older adults through a distinctive “no format” blend of quality popular pop / rock and classic rock music and specifically avoiding dance and current pop hits, supported by concise local news and information. The style of the radio station is built around a free sounding theme which, for most of the time, replaces traditional highly formatted radio presentation with listener vox-pops and well produced short voice-links which are distinctive, entertaining and different. However, the focus of the station is with 35 to 54 adults, with a male 40 something as its core target listener – traditionally a demographic that have grown up with commercial radio but have increasingly found themselves switching to music services provided by the BBC, especially BBC Radio 2. JACK fm’s speech proposals will also act as a significant point of difference to existing ervices.
