John Sinclair Radio Show 771: Amazing Grace

Episode 771 is coming from the Detroit studios of Radio Free Amsterdam in the Cass Corridor as a quick remembrance of the great Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, who passed away in Detroit yesterday. This hour was selected from her gospel music recordings, principally the album called Amazing Grace, which begins with remarks from her father, Rev. C.L. Franklin, but we’ll start out with a gospel-pop number and end with a blues. Aretha!
