This was pretty common on automated stations of the era. As I recall, the
Hitparade format (re: WROR thread) had song intros recorded as part of the
song. They were just generic title & artist intros, maybe mentioning
Hitparade (by necessity as it was a syndicated service). WCGY used a
service well into the 80s (from TM I think) that played 2 songs back to
back which were backsold together ("the Eagles' Already Gone AND Debbie
Boone, You Light Up My Life"). I recall hearing stations using this
approach even in the mid 80s in some smaller markets.
