The station started its life with a "beautiful music" format. In 1984, 5AA was bought by the South Australia State Government owned TAB, ditching music to broadcast horse and dog racing, with talkback in between race calls.

This format lasted 12 years and in 1996, 5AA was separated from the TAB and sold to DMG Radio, now Nova Entertainment. 5AA retained its talk format but the racing content was replaced with news, talkback and sport. In 2000, DMG Radio started branding the station as FIVEaa.
