Did GA have background music when the park opened?

Did Great Adventure have area background music, and if so was it themed to the various areas of the park or was it simply "pop" music from the '70s or another era?
I don't recall seeing speakers in any of the early photos from the first several seasons.

Please stay on topic; this thread is about the park's early years.

When the park fist opened it went like this- You entered the park by ths four tents. Music was from the calliope and it was loud. In the area were Raggedy Ann and Andy who would meet and greet. The Keystone Cops chased a gorilla in and around the meery go round. Coco the Clown was on his stilts with clowns everywhere. The first bandstand by the fountain had a band and by Gingerbrad Fancy was Bango Ron playing Dixieland on the patio. The Bandstand by the Lake had two bands- the girls band and then a group called Prodigy. But the enterainment was always live no canned background stuff. Warner LeRoy wouldn't hear of it. And no matter where you turned there was some form of entertainment going on- all day and up to park closing.
You are 100% correct! The park had NO canned music, nor a PA system in the early years. Even when the entrance moved, the only music you heard was at the main gate while purchasing tickets. Once inside the park, the only music was from the Musik Express or from a bandstand with live performers. I don't mind having soft background music being played, or music "themed" to a specific area, but having ear-blasting "comin-atcha radio-style" or the latest "trendy" beats being pummeled into your head is too much.
