Ross Revenge

Format

Largely Top 40 chart material with some middle-of-the-road music as well.  Emphasis was placed on Dutch artists, but the station also played international hits  and flashbacks.

Records  were played two or three at a time without interruption by DJs or commercial breaks. Also at the top of each hour a Satellietschijf (Powerplay) record would be aired -  a paid 'plug' record changed on a weekly basis.

Commercial breaks were aired about every ten minutes with a number of different adverts grouped in each break.
