I didn't work in radio in the 70's. I LISTENED to radio in the 70's. The thing I noticed most from listening to the radio in the 70's was that they kept playing the same few songs over and over and over and over. It was a little better on FM, but not by much.

When I did hear the stations my parents listened to, I don't think any stations would play anything recorded on 78's. Now that I'm older, and I appreciate more musical variety than I did when I was a kid, the biggest problem with hearing music from the 30's and 40's is that the technical quality of the recordings are pretty bad, except for movie soundtracks. The old 78's aren't just in mono, they're very lo-fi and scratchy.
