InterFM's slogan is The Real Music Station since April 2013. Its previous slogan was "Tokyo's No. 1 Music Station".

The station uses English as its main language besides Japanese, with the Public Service Announcement segments aired in Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Tagalog, Indonesian, Spanish, Thai, Portuguese, and French to better serve the international community in the Tokyo Metropolitan area and its vicinity, not to mention news and other information bits in Japanese that the locals will find convenient.

70% of its airtime is dedicated to music created and played worldwide, while the remaining 30% goes to Japanese pop and rock music selected in large part by a committee.

InterFM broadcast style mirrors American FM radio style and is consistent with stations in networks such as iHeartMedia in the United States.
