I worked for a station in the 60s who started each broadcast day at 6 AM by playing the Theme From ‘The Sound of Music” by Percy Faith. The format was easy listening and we called the format ‘The Sound of Music’, so it was appropriate. They signed off by playing “The Lord’s Prayer” by the Morman Tabernacle Choir. It went on and on and on. A babysitting 1st class engineer (required back then) once threw the ‘off’ switch at the second “Amen” and went home….almost got fired.
