John Sinclair Radio Show: The Queen Of Soul

John Sinclair Radio Show: The Queen Of Soul

Episode 704 is coming from our Detroit headquarters above the Carl Lundgren Art Studio in the Cass Corridor with a tribute to the great Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, on the occasion of the City of Detroit naming a street after her next week. We’ll hear several o fher Columbia recordings from 1960-65 and then her timeless Atlantic hits from 1967 and 1968 and a few little icings on the cake. But Aretha’s made so many great records that we’ll probably have to play another hours worth next week! But today is my daughter Sunny’s 50th birthday and I’m dedicating this program to her while she recuperates in the hospital. Happy birthday, baby!
