Zetland FM plays a melodic adult contemporary style of music which allows us to play a big variety of songs. There are categories that represent music from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and the 2000 decades, as well as recurrent songs and the latest ‘playlisted' music which highlights the best music of today - this takes the form of an A and B list with the A list being the highest rotated.
