John Sinclair Radio Show: Steps

John Sinclair Radio Show: Steps

Episode 708 is coming from my Detroit headquarters above the Carl Lundgren Art Studio in the Cass Corridor where I’ve returned from Amsterdam prematurely to get treated for a minor medical emergency, so I’ll be broadcasting out of Detroit again for a few weeks to come, starting with this program dedicated to my brother David, born May 31, 1945 and gone from us since 2008, and featuring music he liked to listen to by the Miles Davis Sextet, the Thelonious Monk Orchestra, the Ornette Coleman Quartet, Charles Mingus, the John Coltrane Quartet, and Cecil Taylor, plus my reading of his great poem “Pontiac’s Speech To The White Man” from my album Let’s Go Get ’Em to close the show. I’m also dedicating this program to my daughter Sunny while she recuperates in the hospital.
