While living in Tinsel Town, I had a 3 hour weekly Jazz radio show on KCSN 
for 16 1/2 years titled "Bob Ringwald's Bourbon Street Parade."

On one show, I played nothing but cut after cut of "Royal Garden Blues."  I 
did not refer to the fact that I was repeating the same song over & over.  I 
would back announce the previous song & then announce the next one, just as 
if it were a different song.

Of course, each recording was by a different band.

I can't remember how many cuts I played that day, maybe 35 or 40.  I believe 
that Listmate Stan Brager was my engineer at the time so maybe he remembers.
