Coast FM is licensed to server the Southern and South-Western community in the Adelaide metropolitan area. The station operates 24 hours per day, with live presenters providing personal contact with listeners. From 6.00am to 6.00pm the Committee of Management dictates the type of programming, such as news, sport, music and special reports. Adelaide's Coast FM's programming has a very heavy bias towards popular rock and pop music from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, which suits the main audience who are 39 years plus. Coast FM also features country music, every day from 2pm to 4pm. From 6pm each evening, Coast FM offers traditional community radio fare: sport, religion, foreign language and specialty music programmes, including jazz, soul, musicals, alternative, dance, rock-a-billy, contemporary pop and music featuring local artists and bands. During the day you can also catch folk and more sport: John O'Neil's racing preview and Australia's longest running soccer radio programme.
