Automated Radio =>> "Olde Golde" from IGM International Good Music <<= 1972 Audition Demo

This is a demo for IGM's "Olde Golde" automated radio format.
IGM was a provider of radio automation hardware and music in the late 1960s and early 1970s when listeners didn't even know it was going on. The music tapes included disk jockey voices, and were distributed all over the USA to stations that had IGM automation.
Here's an example of what IGM hardware looked like:

I became fascinated with automated radio after hearing this on WDZ, 1050AM, Decatur, IL; and WBNQ, 101.5FM, Bloomington, IL in the very early 1970s. Even though WBNQ very soon changed over the Drake-Chenault Solid Gold, WDZ continued for a couple more years, but I remember the mix being very heavily weighted in the 1950s, with very little material from the mid-1960s to what was then present. Thanks for posting! I'll place a link from my site (which has a large section with automated radio formats), https://www.dougquick.com, Central Illinois On-Line Broadcast Museum.
