Adult Contemporary
ADULT CONTEMPORARY MUSIC (AC) is a North American term used to describe a form of radio-played popular music , ranging from 1960s vocal and 1970s soft rock music to predominantly ballad -heavy music of the present day, with varying degrees of easy listening , pop , soul , rhythm and blues , quiet storm , and rock influence. Adult contemporary is rather a continuation of the easy listening and soft rock style that became popular in the 1960s and 1970s with some adjustments that reflect the evolution of pop/rock music. Adult contemporary tends to have lush, soothing and highly polished qualities where emphasis on melody and harmonies is accentuated. It is usually melodic enough to get a listener's attention, and is inoffensive and pleasurable enough to work well as background music . Like most of pop music , its songs tend to be written in a basic format employing a verse–chorus structure

Canadian Communications Foundation
The CANADIAN COMMUNICATIONS FOUNDATION (CCF) is a history of Canadian broadcasting for radio and television chronicles and documents. It also provides a history of radio and television stations, including networks, programs, broadcasters and many others. The CCF was established in 1967, by the Canadian Association of Broadcasters . Its mission: to "commemorate throughout Canada the development of electronic communications". In the ensuing years, the project moved forward slowly, perhaps because broadcasters were too preoccupied with the challenges of the present and the future to their industry to be able to properly reflect on or to chronicle the past. But, all the while, a search was carried on to find the ideal vehicle with which to fulfill the mission. It was not until the potential of the Internet was revealed and realized that the ideal vehicle was found and two veteran Canadian broadcasters became involved in CCF
