John Sinclair Radio Show: Heart Attack

John Sinclair Radio Show: Heart Attack

Episode 697 is coming from my brand new headquarters at 55 Peterboro in the Cass Corridor of Detroit, not far from where I first settled here in 1964 at Second & Forest, and now, thanks to my old old friend Joel Landy, I’ve been ensconced directly above the Carl Lundgren Art Studios and I’ll be broadcasting from here for the next few weeks (god willing). As I write, Chuck Berry passed away yesterday at the age of 90, and since we honored him a few weeks ago when Bob Dylan got the Nobel Prize by playing an hour of Chuck’s classic Chess singles, I’m going to replay that program (#677) after this one on Monday and make Episode 697 a memorial to the great James Cotton, the blues harmonica giant who passed away last week at the age of 81 (July 1, 1935—March 16, 2017), with music from his days as Muddy Waters’ harpist to his own recordings for Sun, Vanguard, and Verve Records to his reunion with Muddy Waters on Columbia Records—just a taste of the greatness of James Cotton.
