  1. Question: what did DJ’s in the early seventies do with the Floyd albums upon which most of the tracks were long, extended pieces? Were FM stations even back then, ever allowed to play such dreamy, meandering pieces? Were they restricted (by their station managers) to playing short tracks like ‘Seamus’ or ‘San Tropez’ or ‘Fat Old Sun’?

    • Radio stations and DJs back in that time had a lot more freedom to play with they wanted in a free-form style format so time constraints weren’t really much of an issue on air.
