Are you talking about the "special versions" that 'RKO briefly played in the
early 70's where an 'RKO jingle was sung over the intro (somewhat) to the
tune of the song?  I definitely recall them playing a version of Brown Sugar
where the pseudo-background singers went "brown sugar, brown sugar, WRKO!".
Some of these were quite convincing, others sounded blatantly fake.
