I don't know in which month of 1969 "Music Till Dawn" disappeared, but
WCRB, which was then a classical-music station, chose to go to a 24-hour-a-day 
operation in the subsequent year, 1970.  Richard L. Kaye made the announcement 
during his annual Beethoven's Birthday Party, that year, the Great One's 200th
(Ludwig, not Richard).
