John Sinclair Radio Show: Motor City Is Burning

John Sinclair Radio Show: Motor City Is Burning

Episode 713 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam headquarters in Detroit at 55 Peterboro in Landy Land just off the Cass Corridor with an hour of tunes by the MC-5 in honor of the forthcoming 50th anniversary commemoration of the Detroit Rebellion of 1967 as limned in the 5’s classic version of John Lee Hooker’s “Motor City Is Burning.” We’ll hear live recordings from the Grande Ballroom, the Saginaw Civic Center, and the First Unitarian Church at Cass & Forest, plus a great cut from their High Time album on Atlantic and a long jam from the rehearsal studio to close the show.
