MUSIC: Dr. Jockenstein, RIP

During the golden era of American Funk and R&B of the late 1970's, the AM radio of my '68 Chevy Malibu was permanently locked on WESL, a fabulous hard core R&B station just across the river in East St. Louis, Illinois. As genius as it was entertaining, WESL back then was as definitive "old school" radio as it gets. It was simply amazing. Back in that day WESL had a roster full of outstanding DJs, every one of them a Hall Of Famer, and none was better than The Doctor... Dr. Jockenstein. I was in college at the time, but I think I learned more about life and the real ways of the world listening to Jockenstein and his WESL cohorts than I ever learned in any college classroom...
