Not only live DJs but also in-station record libraries. They were all the same, yet no two stations were alike.

I remember when Dan Ingram was on WIL in St. Louis. While I Iiked him, he couldn't compare to Gary Owens or Jack Carney,both of whom were on that same station at the time. While they all moved on to bigger markets and national acclaim, Jack Carney came back to St. Louis and became a legend on KMOX radio.

Murray the K - couldn't stand him.
Mad Daddy - a legend.
Dan Ingram - simply the greatest AM DJ ever.
Cousin Brucie - annoying.

WMCA briefly had one quick witted, Ingram-like original who yakked a mile-a-minute but made you pay attention to catch the inside humor.
Name: B. Mitchell Reid.

In the SF Bay area, we (meaning me and my family) listened to KEWB 910 a lot when I was little, but eventually moved on to 610 KFRC.  For me specifically, when the psychadelic music became the "in" thing, I stopped listening to new music on the radio altogether and found an oldies station *somewhere* on the dial... Heck if I remember where...

For me now, AM radio is for sports and sportstalk only.  For music, I listen to ragtime, hot-jazz and swing recordings.  And on occasion I get my hot-jazz fix in-person (like I did just today!).

I listened to Murray the K and Mad Daddy on 1010 WINS, and Dan Ingram and Cousin Brucie on 77 WABC in new York City.  570 WMCA was also a Top 40 NYC station, but I didn't listen to it much.
