Jack FM

JACK FM is a radio station branding licensed by Sparknet Communications to 44 media markets in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Russia. Stations adopting this branding play a mix of 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s hits with some current hot adult contemporary singles.

Jack's slogan "playing what we want" can also be considered as more of a motto or philosophy of their programming. They promote themselves as having a larger and more varied playlist than other commercial radio stations. It is not unusual for a Jack FM station to have a playlist of over 1000 songs compared to normal FM stations which sometimes have playlists of fewer than 500 songs.

Further distinguishing the format from traditional radio is the fact that many Jack FM radio stations do not use DJs or have traffic or weather reports; indeed, the format "has been likened to an MP3/ipod set on shuffle." The stations are officially classified as the Variety Hits or Adult Hits format by radio research companies.
