Adult contemporary music, frequently abbreviated to just AC, is a type of radio format that plays mainstream and pop music, without hip-hop or rap since, as per the name, it is geared more towards adults than teens.
Adult Top 40 was an American radio format which was reminiscent of pre-1995 Top 40 radio before rap music became a staple on playlists.
Adult Top 40 radio was created to appeal to a demographic that liked pop music without the rap.

Adult contemporary is essentially a continuation of the soft rock style that became popular in the '70s, with a few adjustments that reflect the evolution of pop-music production techniques.
Adult contemporary was usually melodic enough to hold listeners' attention, but agreeable and inoffensive enough to work equally well as background music; most critics reviled it as sonic wallpaper or overly safe, sentimental glop, but that didn't prevent it from becoming one of the most popular radio formats of the '80s.
Adult contemporary's visibility dwindled just a bit in the '90s, mainly because the rigidly compartmentalized state of radio and the decline of Top 40 programming during the decade meant that AC artists couldn't necessarily rely on as much hit-making exposure outside of their core adult audience.

 Adult Contemporary
Adult Contemporary Stations (AC) today serve the same purpose as the middle-of-the- road (MOR) stations of yesterday.
Adult contemporary is the most difficult radio format to define because the phrase has been used to market everything from hits to soft pop.
Because adults are busy with other things, AC stations have fewer actives among their audience than other formats.

Hot AC is slightly more alternative than Soft AC - Pink's "Don't Let Me Get Me" is a considerable Hot AC hit but is not played on Soft AC radio stations.
The Hot AC format is sometimes called "Adult top 40", since Hot AC stations could loosely be classified as Top 40 stations without hip-hop or rap.
Soft AC is also known as "lite" music, and many radio stations across America that play Soft AC refer to themselves as "lite" stations.
