5 minutes, 30 seconds
This is King from Powerhouse Radio's very first radio interview, with just 3 months of experience under his belt. He didn't mention that to Frank "Skip" Conte, keyboards, Malcolm Jones, bass, and Joe Lala, drums/percussion of Blues Image, who all stopped by to talk.
This live interview is from April 1, 1970, (WNYU-AM in New York, NY), when King was a teenage freshman at New York University.
