"We find that a lot of people just like having that mood in their house. Even if they're not sitting there glued to the radio, it's the atmosphere that they're after. Something to make the day different," said Steven Kapp Perry, host of FM 100.3's Soft Sunday Sounds for the past seven years.
Since it began broadcasting in smaller segments in 2000, Soft Sunday Sounds has proved to be a Sabbath Day staple. Now as an all-day program, it is the No. 1 listened-to weekend radio program in Utah, said Bill West, FM 100.3 program director.
"It did fill a need, and that's just been obvious by the ratings," Perry said.
