What I like about the CKXL chart pictures from 1970 is that it represents the classic 5 jock line-up of the era.
In a 24 hour day you'd have: (roughly, with some variables) a 6-10am (John Novac)..a 10-2 ( Charlie West)..2-6pm (Jackson Casey)..6-midnight (Wayne Bryant) and the Midnight to 6am all-nighter, in this case the perennial (Dr.Dan Gavin). It seemed he was there for decades. He loved it (the shift) and was adored by his audience.
There may have been a revolving door of occasional part-timers, but usually at a lot of stations like this, this was this standard quintet line-up.
The same guys worked a six day week and covered whatever was needed Saturdays and Sundays; oh and remotes and other personal appearances as well.
All for an average of 600 bucks a month.

The Magnificent Seven was the classic 7 DJ line-up of the mid-1960s, which Dave McCormick PD'ed at KOL Seattle. Three hour shifts on weekdays and six hours on weekends and overnights. Unless someone was off, it could all be done without part-timers and a six day workweek. Since the transmitter was off the air for maintenance Sunday nights after midnight, that accounted for the only uncovered shift.
