John Sinclair Radio Show 742: Master Blaster

Episode 742 is coming from the Detroit headquarters of Radio Free Amsterdam in the Cass Corridor where the weather isn’t quite so severe this week and my recuperation from the physical problems I’ve been suffering is coming along quite nicely now, while today is the anniversary not only of my mother’s birth in 1912 but of the Detroit “lightning campus dope raid” of January 24, 1967 that started my long struggle with the Michigan legal authorities to overthrow the state’s marijuana laws. which was ultimately successful some five years later. I was listening to Stevie Wonder playing “Happy Birthday” to Dr. Martin Luther King on Episode 740 and it made me meditate on the greatnesss of Steveland Morris, the blind kid from Saginaw, Michigan who developed into one of the greatest musical artists of the 20th century, and made me want to play an hour of his music to add to the hour we offered in our last program for 2016, Episode 685, in honor of the City of Detroit renaming of Milwaukee Avenue in the New Center area as Stevie Wonder Avenue. And of course I must offer once again my special thanks to Stevie for helping get me out of prison on Deember 13, 1971 when he was only 21 years of age.
