While not the type of survey that we are used to seeing,
this is a VERY early example of actual records being played on the air.
I was able to find record numbers for every one, based on the vintage
Columbia Records catalog(s).
From the Des Moines (Iowa) Tribune newspaper, dated Tuesday, June 26, 1923.
The radio station call letters were WGF and according to my research,
the station was only in operation for a couple of years.
