Radio 71, side A, track 1: “Sir Duke” by Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder - Sir DukeOh, Stevie Wonder, here we go!  The very first song I recorded off the radio as I rekindled my love of bootlegging!  In my several years of recording music off the radio as a kid, I’d recorded a few by you, but you were always singing with other folks.  And not only was this a solo venture, but it was a song I’d never heard before in my life.  Of course I instantly loved it.  I’ve listened to it about a thousand times since 2013, and knowing that I’d be writing about this one soon, I’ve been humming along to it in my head for the last several days.  This is a very auspicious beginning to this first “tape”!
