CORRECTION

In the program I indicate that the original version of “Prove It” was released by Aretha Franklin in 1967. That is incorrect. The original was recorded by Mary Wheeler and released on Calla Records in 1966. It is an excellent track that can be found on Youtube.

I’d like to thank John Moloney for setting the record straight.
