At one point, the KDKA music librarian typed an index card for each artist and each song that was in the library (including all songs on an album. Each record was stamped or stickered with a number and filed by that number, rather than by artist. That practice had ended by the time I joined KDKA in 1970, but the index cards file remained. At one point, that music library was my office. While I was at KDKA, we played music from records (with rare exception from a cart). When the records started to skip or crackle excessively, I had to try to obtain fresh copies from the record labels, Record Rama or National Record Mart.
