William Parker is great again in his third and final hour with Don Paul & Maryse Déjean, with music including “Invocation (for David S. Ware)”, two duets of William and Hamid Drake, one with Milford Graves, one with his partner Patricia Nicholson Parker, and one from his group Raining On The Moon. This hour also presents the Muntu EnsembleBilly Higgins, the Kitchen Blend Band, Raphe Malik in duet with Jimmy Lyons, and pieces featuring Glenn Spearman and Lisle Ellis. William’s talk of his history from the 1970s onward adds glimpses into future projects. The episode is rich with great music and performers and the expansiveness exemplified by William’s watchword that “You can always get a room in the house of sound.”

John Sinclair Radio Show 795: Hail King Zulu


Episode 795 is coming for the last time from the John Sinclair Café in the Psychedelic Healing Shack in the north end of Detroit, where I’ve been beaming out on Mondays since the new year started but now am forced to accept that my experiment with operating a marijuana-friendly coffeeshop in Detroit has met with an unfortunate and untimely end. If all goes well, my next show will be coming directly from New Orleans, but I’ve just today gotten word that my friend and host Jerry Brock has taken ill and won’t be able to accommodate me, so I have to find alternative lodgings at once or severely alter my travel plans and miss the Mardi Gras for the first time since 1981. In any case, the recordings live on and tonight we’ll have music from the Mardi Gras by Professor Longhair, Earl King, the Rebirth Brass Band, the Wild Magnolias, Dr. John, Roger & the Gypsies, Sugar Boy & the Cane Cutters, Sammy Ridgely, Wardell & His Slammin’ Big Band, Kermit Ruffins & the Barbeque Swingers, Smokey Johnson, Snooks Eaglin, and the Guardians of the Flame. I appear at the beginning and then the sides take over completely. until the end
