The John Sinclair Radio Show

Episode 726 is coming once again from Radio Free Amsterdam headquarters in Detroit’s Cass Corridor, where we celebrated the September 23 birthday of John Coltrane and then the same birthday for Ray Charles a week later. Listening to the Ray Charles show made me want to hear another hour of his ground-breaking Atlantic Records productions made between 1952 and 1959. How can we go wrong with another solid hour of the great Ray Charles, Genius of the Blues?
