John Sinclair Radio Show 733: Crying In The City

Episode 733 is coming from the Detroit headquarters of Radio Free Amsterdam at 55 Peterboro in the Cass Corridor and features an in-depth look at the brand new album by singer Robert Bradley called Down In The Bend, produced by Tino Gross for Funky D Records, plus an initial listen to a rough mix of a cut that features the great North Mississippi guitarist Kenny Brown from my forthcoming Funky D album, selections from Bob Baldori & Arthur Magliazza, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis from the 1972 Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival, the Billy Davis Rhythm Machine, and four unissued cuts by Professor Longhair that I just found on a hand-burnt CD.
