John Sinclair Radio Show 746: Music Came

Episode 746 is coming from the back patio of the Maple Leaf Bar on Oak Street in uptown New Orleans, right next to Frenchy’s studio, where I’m playing more tracks this week from the three CDs I produced for WWOZ Radio in 1994 when they wanted to create a series of albums to give away as premiums during their biannual fund drives. I produced the first three CDs in the series in the earliest days of digital recording working with Mark Bingham and the late Keith Keller and featuring music recorded live by WWOZ from Alvin Batiste & the Jazztronauts with Muriel Jennings, the Fred Kemp Quintet with Smokey Johnson, the Re-Birth Brass Band, Walter Payton’s Snap Bean Revue featuring Sharon Martin, Steve Masakowski, Eddie Bo, Willie Lockett & the Blues Krewe, the First Revolution Singers, and Jon Cleary.
