'MVY's format is an eclectic version of what is
called "AAA" or "Triple-A", meaning "Adult Album
The definition of the "AAA" format from the radio
station search engine radio-locator.com is: "AAA
stations target an adult audience with a large
variety of music that hovers on the fringe of
mainstream pop and rock, including Americana,
alternative rock, alternative country, blues,
folk and world music. The selections stay away
from rap or any of the 'hard stuff'."
The greater Boston area "AAA" station is 92.5 WXRV
"The River", but that is a more tightly playlisted
version than 'MVY.
Formatted college station WERS and college-based
professional Public Radio station WUMB are also two
different flavors of "AAA" at least during their
weekday programming, WERS leaning more toward
"alternative rock", and WUMB more toward roots,
Americana, folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter, etc...
