The stations are branded as "Oldies 92.9" and simulcast the Oldies format on all three signals. Oldies 92.9's brand of oldies features an unusually deep and vast playlist offering the first generation of rock and roll of the 1960's. Oldies 92.9 also offers select hits from the late 50's and tops out musically into the early to mid 70's. The stations also carry Boston Red Sox during the baseball season and The Lost 45s with Barry Scott on Saturdays 8am-noon. The studios are in Franklin, along with co-owned WPNH-FM, WFTN-FM and WSCY.
