[Description by Uncle Ricky]

This genuine Super Soul treasure was rescued from a yard sale a few years ago by Sam Carson, a long-time Baltimore area jock, radio enthusiast and record collector. The 7-inch reel was digitized and the bits were contributed to REELRADIO by Joe Evelius. It features WWIN for 43 minutes after midnight, hosted by Rockin' Robin, who finds a couple of tunes so nice he plays 'em twice!

Rockin' opens the hour with a dedication to a Vietnam Vet and two of his fellow soldiers, all of whom survived a company massacre and have returned home. We don't know why, but there is no reverb on this recording, though additional recordings from the same day are saturated with it. Maybe they turned it off overnight to avoid waking the neighbors.
