This afternoon when we play “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Marvin Gaye[/lastfm], we’ll take the 3rd caller to win Kenny Loggins concert tickets!

Many years before global warming became a hot topic, Marvin Gaye wrote about the environment and how we have an obligation to care for the Earth.

According to Earl Van Dyke of Motown’s house band the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Funk Brothers[/lastfm], Berry Gordy did not know what the word “ecology” meant when he heard the song. It had to be explained to him.

Caller #3 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) wins on ‘Tickets @ 2’ today!
