John Sinclair Radio Show 23: What Is Happening Here

To commemorate the launching of the new RadioFreeAmsterdam.org website on January 1, 2018, we’d like to present the first edition of the John Sinclair Radio Show for 2005, the first episode created under the aegis of Radio Free Amsterdam, founded January 1, 2005 by John Sinclair, Hank Botwinik, and the late Larry Hayden.

Episode 23 was conducted at the anti-squat arts space called What Is Happening Here in the former Hotel Groot next door to Amnesia on the Herengracht. In Amsterdam at that time, buildings and living spaces left unoccupied for one year could be claimed by squatters who moved in and lived rent-free until the owners were ready to do something with the space and took it back. Anti-squats are places vacated until the owners develop plans for future commercial uses and, in the interim, they recruit squatters of their own to prevent just anyone from taking over the space.

What Is Happening Here mastermind Job talks about their arts activities and then turns the discussion to the current anti-marijuana agitation being led by the Mayor of Maastricht, Job’s home town. Smokey Johnson brings our opening theme, “It Ain’t My Fault,” and we’ve got musical selections from the Wild Magnolias with the Rebirth Brass Band, John Sinclair & Wayne Kramer, Magic Slim & the Teardrops, Sinclair with the D-Men, and the great Earl King.
