I understand "chicken AC" to indicate that it was an
AC station that was too chicken to play anything with
a "beat" or a "bite".

WBOS under Ron Robin (as "Stereo 93"...how original!)
played a lot of the bland AC stuff....England Dan &
John Ford-Coley, Seals & Crofts, David Soul's "Don't
give up on us", etc...

But probably not "Ring My Bell" by Anita Ward, or "Le
Freak" by Chic...or "Do ya' think I'm sexy" by Rod
