We had a Wurlitzer that had a toothed wheel and moving pointer on a screw that counted plays. There was one for each record next to its selector coil. You recorded the numbers when you serviced the jukebox and then reset the pointers to 0.How did they do that? Did those old mechanical contraptions have a way to record what selections had been played?
Disagree, even the rock stations delved into folk, country, easy listening, soul. It was just music then. Music Radio! Check out the old radio station charts to see the great diversity. Some stations that were primarily rock programmed country for part of the day. Small market stations programmed everything imaginable, more like network TV.
