The music on WTSS today is mostly upbeat hits from 2000 to the present, minus any hard rock or rap.
In 2006, WTSS began streaming its programming on the Internet.
For instance, much of the mid-to-late 2000s, WTSS' playlist included music as early as the 1970s in an effort to serve listeners when Buffalo did not have an oldies station.
It changed to its current formula after longtime oldies/classic hits outlet WHTT-FM returned to the format.
The station once employed a number of promotional and programming features to build and maintain audience during the day, including 30-minute commercial-free music segments every hour, and an All Request Hour that aired weekdays at p.m.
(formerly the "80s After Work," expanded to include '70s and '90s music in February 2009 as "The Retro Show"), and the three-hour "Saturday Night 80s Party" at p.m.
Beginning in 1984, Rock 102's mornings were hosted live by Roger Christian (still an air personality on the station today).(For the history of the 106.5 frequency in Buffalo, see WYRK). It ceased simulcasting WBEN (AM) a few years later, with the exception of the Clint Buehlman morning show, which it carried until 1973.WBEN-FM aired a mixture of live and automated music, mostly easy listening and block music programming, such as organ music.The station shuffled its lineup in March 2008, eliminating an exercise-oriented "Cardio Radio" hour to make room for Entercom's syndicated women's lifestyle offering, Your Time with Kim Iverson.
Every holiday season, Star switches to the moniker "Buffalo's Christmas Station" and offers 100% Christmas music.
WTSS is temporarily delisted from Mediabase's hot AC panel when the station goes all-Christmas.
