Chez-moi se veut être une émission nostalgique ‘nouveau genre’, un reflet de ‘la belle époque’. On y arrive par l’entremise de reprises de mélodies connues, d’artistes populaires, et de styles musicaux de cette ère, sans toutefois retourner aux enregistrements originaux de la période. De plus sont inséré des notes biographiques, et les souvenirs d’évènements du jour à la scène musicale sont soulignés ainsi que les anniversaires de naissance. On prend aussi le temps de bavarder avec, des artistes se pointent à l’émission.
