The time was summer 1970. I was pregnant with my only child. My son had not started kicking yet…until, one day I was at my best friend’s house. She is the sister of the Casuals’ guitarist, Wayne Colbert (“Radio Baby,” 2/13). We were in the basement at their house listening to the group rehearse. They were going to do a show in Rochester, N.Y. The music and the singing were pumping! Thump, thump, thump…right through my whole body! All of a sudden, I felt my first kick. And he didn’t stop kicking until he was born. I told my son this story all his life. Now I have proof! Thank you so much for doing the cover story on the group. Long live R&B!
