Rock 107 often features a theme each weekend from Friday afternoon to Sunday at midnight, but it's sometimes extended for holiday weekends such as Memorial Day weekend. Some popular themes include:
*Nice Pair Weekend - Blocks of two songs by the same artist are played through the weekend.
*Perfect Ten Weekend - Listeners submit lists of ten songs via e-mail (often following a certain theme, i.e. "songs about cars", "Halloween songs", or simply their personal top ten songs). The lists are played throughout the week.
*Time Travel Weekend - When the clocks change for Daylight Savings Time the station plays blocks of songs from the same year. Blocks can be as short as 3 songs and sometimes longer than 10 songs. Time machine sound effects and facts about each year are included.
*British Invasion Weekend - Primarily music from the British Invasion Era is played throughout the week, often accompanied by history of the era.
*Flashback Weekend - Music from a specific span of time is played throughout the weekend. Often historic highlights from the year, quotes from movies popular during the era, and music facts are also aired.
*Block Party (Rock Block) Weekend - Similarly to the Nice Pair Weekend, blocks of songs by the same artist (three to six) are aired throughout the weekend.
*All Request Weekend - Listener requested songs are featured through the weekend.
*Oh Wow Weekend - Songs that are rarely played or are believed to have personal significance for many people are played, with the intention of giving listeners an "oh, wow." feeling, for not hearing them in a while.
