What is Pure Oldies?

British Invaders to Motown Masters, Timeless Crooners to a Memphis King–they’re all back in Southern Maine on Pure Oldies 105.5.  Unlike other channels, we play nothing but the biggest chart-toppers from the ’50s and ’60s, including the Beatles, Elvis, the Beach Boys, Neil Diamond,  The Supremes, Sam Cooke and many more.  This is the soundtrack of America’s post-war Baby Boom.  But Pure Oldies 105.5 also has mass appeal, with million-selling hits beloved across the generations.  It’s the ideal commercial environment because our listeners are always in a positive, upbeat  frame of mind.  Nationwide consumer research indicates nostalgia is especially therapeutic in the Post-Covid era, and Americans hark back to a simpler, happier time.  Best of all, adults over the age of 55 account for almost a third of Maine’s population and have the largest household net worth of any demographic group.

Pure Oldies Pairs Well With:

  • Rewind 100.9 or The Bay to reach the broadest cross-section of older Baby Boom consumers when they’re most receptive to hearing your message.
