Easy music on the radio

Easy listening music, also known as "easy music," is a popular genre of music that features soft, relaxing melodies and soothing vocals. This genre emerged in the 1950s and 60s as a reaction to the fast-paced, upbeat music of the time, and became popular as background music in restaurants, lounges, and other public spaces.

Some of the most popular artists in the easy music genre include Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and Andy Williams, all of whom were known for their smooth vocals and romantic ballads. Other notable artists include Barbra Streisand, Burt Bacharach, and The Carpenters.

Today, there are many radio stations dedicated to playing easy music, including stations like "The Breeze" and "Easy 99.1 FM." These stations feature a mix of classic and contemporary easy listening music, making it a popular choice for those looking for a relaxing and soothing listening experience. The easy music genre has remained popular over the years, and continues to provide a pleasant backdrop for a variety of settings and moods.
