OH, before the 'suits' caused the change to segmented FM radio formats, like they had done so before with early AM radio to "top 40" and "subdued" the pioneer DJs......<quoted text>
No doubt commercial radio has a playlist of maybe 60 songs they play during the week. That was part of the downfall of all "Smooth Jazz" formats. Those folks never strayed into bebop, fusion, or the atonal movements.
so very good memories of FM radio listening pleasure with the "free-form" WMMR out of Philly back in the day. Also, at least during hours I was listening, the few commercials were done in almost a whisper.
