Toronto's AM740 radio station plays mostly Standards and Nostalgia. Also known as Zoomer Radio, AM740 appeals to listeners over the age of 40 who have a love for classic pop, big bands, and even rock and roll.
AM740 is also a station for those who appreciate oldies since the station airs classics from the 1930s through the 1960s. The station has back-to-back vespertine time slots for those who enjoy romantic songs or tunes that may be a tad risqué. As with most radio stations, news, sports, traffic and weather are included in AM740's programming. But not many radio stations can claim a variety of specialty programming for those who are fond of theatre, television, musicals and soundtrack recordings.
Listeners can also tune in to hear interviews with actors and producers of shows performed mostly in New York, London and Toronto. Informative segments are in place for listeners who enjoy discussing more practical aspects of life. World travelers, car enthusiasts, concerned consumers and conspiracy theorists are all able to find a time slot on AM740 in which they can become totally engulfed.
There's not much that AM740 doesn't cover concerning topics of adult interests. There is a segment for listeners who are interested in horticulture and may be looking for gardening tips or landscaping advice. There is also a segment called "From a Woman's Perspective," which covers health concerns, professional woes, secure travel and a host of other female-related topics.
