. . . There were only two high schools in this vast city of St. Louis for my, uh, particular specimen . . .

[Description by Uncle Ricky from notes by contributor Don Kent]

Here's Hour Two of the First and Original History Of Rock And Roll hosted by Robert W. Morgan, the Ultimate Narrator for the debut presentation of what is arguably the greatest Special Feature of the Top 40 era, and the first Radio Rockumentary.

Originally broadcast from 1PM-2PM on February 21, 1969, and recorded by contributor Don Kent, this program defined all the programs that followed. It was the first, conceived and produced by Ron Jacobs, The original Boss Radio Boss. Following the unprecedented success of this legendary broadcast, Jacobs left KHJ later that year.

An interesting comparison for the REELRADIO faithful is the Ray Charles segment that opens this hour and the WNAP Indianapolis Salutes Ray Charles, 1970 exhibit.

This original KHJ Hour includes Gene Weed for Ford, and early R&B superstars Clyde McPhatter, Chuck Berry, The Coasters, Mickey and Sylvia, The Rays, Billy Ward and His Dominoes, and a few mid-charting rarities.
