John Sinclair Radio Show 743: Funkin’ For Fun

Episode 743 is my last show to be coming from the Detroit headquarters of Radio Free Amsterdam in the Cass Corridor until the middle of March when I plan to return from the Mardi Gras in New Orleans, so my next show will be the annual Mardi Gras music spectacular coming from somewhere in the Crescent City, but this last Detroit show is a special presentation of an hour of music by George Clinton selected and programmed by the great painter Jason Yates as a guest on the Pass The Paintbrush show on KCHUNG radio in Los Angeles on Martin Luther King Day this year, with cuts by Parliament, Funkadelic, the Brides of Funkenstein, the Space Cadets, the Sweat Band, and The Parliaments.
