John Sinclair Radio Show: Mayday! Mayday!

John Sinclair Radio Show: Mayday! Mayday!

Episode 703 is a special May Day program coming from our Detroit headquarters above the Carl Lundgren Art Studio in the Cass Corridor with a civic message centered on our funky president and reviving some classic numbers by James Brown, the New York Art Quartet, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Was (Not Was), the great New Orleans poet Kalamu ya Salaam, and Wendell Harrison, that spoke of similar situations in the recent past, closing with a political plea from your host: Vote For Miles! Please note that I was meaning to cut this program at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Detroit Love-In on Belle Isle on Sunday, April 30, but they said it’s gonna rain all day so I thought I’d make it in the comfort and warmth of my pad here on Peterboro Street instead.
