Music

Gold 905 adopts the Classic hits radio format, with the majority of the playlist consisting of music from the 1980s, along with a small minority of easy listening hits from the early 2000s. The station has both general daytime programmes and specialist programmes of particular types or eras of music.

On weekday nights, Nite Flight features ballads, soft rock and easy listening hits. On Saturday evenings, Rock of Ages features classic rock, and Solid Gold features disco and dance music. This specialist programming previously ran from 6pm to 2am in February 2016, but was changed to run only from 8pm to midnight in November 2017.[1] On Sunday mornings, The Vintage Showcase features Oldies music from the 1960s and 1970s.
