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 music, frequently abbreciated 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.
Soft AC is also known as "lite" music, and many radio stations across America that play Soft AC refer to themselves as "lite" stations.
In this sense, the Soft AC format may soon be facing the demographic pressures that the "Big Band" format faced in the 1980's and 1990's and the Oldies format is starting to face today and as a result one may see Soft AC less on over-the-air radio and more on satellite radio systems.
