The short playlist reflects less new music being played in the adult contemporary radio foramt. Yet it was one of the most widely listened of all formats, indicating that people's tastes for new music were not as strong as in previous decades. The tightening of radio playlists was a national trend due to corporate consolidation and the arrival of many other competing media channels throughout the decade. Falling music sales also indicated this was not the era of adults getting excited over AC music, although adults in the 40-50 age group remained strong buyers of music, except not necessarily new music.
