The fact that the description included 60's and 70's is what made me think 
the format is basically not standards, although it could include some.  I 
mean, there are people doing standards to this very day, but if someone 
said a station has a contemporary format, I would not think of 
standards.  If a format was described as 40's and 50's, then I would 
probably think of standards.
