Get Morganized with Robert W. Morgan!

LISTEN TO THIS BRIEF SEGMENT TO BECOME FAMILIAR WITH ROBERT W. MORGAN'S VOICE:




Hi, I'm
Robert W. Morgan,
veteran DJ on Boss Radio
93-KHJ Boss Angeles.

I'm here today with an exciting announcement.
Next January, I'll be joining The Shady Bunch
deejay staff here at S-P-M-M. My new show,
Get Morganized with Robert W. Morgan,
will be based on my years on the air at
Boss Radio KHJ. I'll be playing the
greatest sounds of the 60s, the hottest
hits on the West Coast and across the USA.


What does it mean to get Morganized? Listen to the songs in this tutorial preview
and you'll understand. Every song has a "Piggyback Cold Open." As you come
to each video couplet, click to start the first video. You will immediately hear
the jingle vocalists sing my name, Robert W. Morgan. The moment they finish
singing "Morgan," click to play the second video, the one containing the song.
Get the knack of playing deejay with me and enjoy the authentic sound of
Boss Radio KHJ Boss Angeles in the 60s. Ready...set...

ZAP! - YOU'RE MORGANIZED!

"Wild Thing" - The Troggs
(July/Aug. 1966, highest chart pos. #1)



ZAP! -
YOU'RE MORGANIZED!

From Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500
Greatest Songs of All Time, that was "Wild Thing
you make my heart sing," done by The Troggs,
the British garage rockers originally known as
The Troglodytes. Robert W. Morgan with you
for this special practice session, getting you
Morganized and getting you acquainted with
the kind of music you will hear on my new
radio show coming soon to S-P-M-M.


That was fun, let's try another. This man is an actor who appeared in more than
two dozen movies and television series, but he is best known as the singer who
recorded a million selling cover of "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me," a top 5 hit
in 1953 for pop singer Karen Chandler. His name is Mel Carter!

Are you getting the hang of it? Let's try another
song. On my new show I'll be spinning the sounds
of Southern California, the surf rock and hot rod
tunes that caught fire all across America in the
early and mid 60s. Here's one now from two
architects of the genre, Jan and Dean, with
"Surf City (here we come)."

to a preview of my new show coming next
year to S-P-M-M Radio. I'm teaching you
how to play DJ and get Morganized.


Along with bands of the British invasion, American made soul and
SoCal surf sounds, I'll be playing hits in the folk-rock category like
this chart-topper by The Mamas and the Papas-- "Monday, Monday."

"Monday, Monday" - The Mama's And The Papa's
(Apr./May 1966, highest chart pos. #1)


ZAP! -
YOU'RE MORGANIZED!

From the spring of '66 that was "Monday, Monday"
by the The Mamas and The Papas, the group's only
single to reach number one on the Billboard chart.

This band had a hit or two. Maybe you've heard
of them. They're The Beatles and their U.S. tours
brought them to Boss Angeles in the summers of
1964, 1965 and 1966. Here now are The Fab Four
with a number one hit that straddled two of those
years... '65 and '66-- "We Can Work It Out."

working out the timing of these Piggybacks and
getting the knack of playing DJ? If you time that
second click just right, the result is pure Top 40
radio nirvana. Practice makes perfect, so let's go
again. Here's one of the most successful husband
and wife duos of all time, The Bonos, Sonny and
 Cher, with their monster from the summer of '65,

No sampling of songs from West Coast top 40
radio would be complete without something by
these guys, The Beach Boys. This car song was
released in June of 1962 on the B side of their
first hit "Surfin' Safari." Check it out-- "409!"

Robert W. Morgan
