The year was 1967.
If you lived in NY metro, and you listened to rock, you listened to WNEW-FM.
If you listened to WNEW overnight, you listened to Allison Steele, the Night Bird.

About as classic as it is possible to get.
Head phones on, sit back, relax, immerse.....
[... and, from a technical standpoint, there aren't too many pieces of rock that I can think of that feature a five string banjo as the lead.]
