"Your mother will love you no matter what you do... because she is a woman!"
Just one delicious quote from this horrible pro-American propaganda piece! This is mainly a pro-Vietnam single penned by Victor Lundberg, an American radio personality from Grand Rapids, Michigan. This is the complete 45, with all of it's scratchy goodness.
Lundberg was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was a newscaster at Grand Rapids radio station WMAX when he released "An Open Letter" in September 1967. The record, written by Lundberg and produced by Jack Tracy, imagines Lundberg talking to his teenage son -- in real life, Lundberg apparently had at least one male teenager in his household at the time. Lundberg touches on hippies, the Vietnam War, and patriotism. The voice-over, spoken over "Battle Hymn of the Republic", memorably ends with Lundberg telling his son that, if the teen burns his draft card, then he should "burn (his) birth certificate at the same time. From that moment on, I have no son."
