I probably hadn't heard that voice since I was three years old, but I knew all the words. ...

Albert Sam is a vascular surgeon, life-long Louisiana resident, former Vice Chair of theĀ WRKF Board of Directors, and a sustaining member.

He heard Sam Cooke singing, "A Change is Gonna Come," on Weekend Edition when he was driving to work one morning.

Sam says he hears something moving like that on WRKF weekly.

When I was a child in the late '60s and early '70s, there was a lot of change in our country during that time. That song more than anything embodies what the nation felt. ... It's a powerful song.
