Use the 'Color Background Based on Alert Condition' study. On the Alerts tab, enter a formula like the following:

OR(BARTIME < 9.5/24 ,BARTIME >= 16.5/24)

Replace 9.5 (9:30am) and 16.5 (4:30pm) with your stop and start times.

To apply different background colors to different periods, add the study multiple times.

The study "Time Range Highlight" is another option.
