In November, he married his wife Shelley, who he met while she was working for KHJ Program Director Ron Jacobs.  
Lured back by the California sun he returned to KHJ in 1972, much to the delight of the Los Angeles listening audience…and quickly regained his throne as King of morning-drive radio in LA!

PLAY Robert W. and Susanna Morgan, 1976? (00:53)

"Not sure of the year, but Morgan Producer Mitch Lewis came across this one. Robert filled up a box with old cassettes from his garage. This appears to be Robert W. and his daughter Susanna singing "Old McDonald Had a Farm". From the sound of Susanna's voice, she's probably about two years old here, placing it sometime in 1976."
