JOHN SINCLAIR RADIO SHOW 869 – PIPE DREAM BLUES

Episode 869 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam’s Detroit headquarters at 55 Peterboro St. where I’m featuring another hour of music from the vast archive of reefer songs I’ve just received from a listener called Paul Paul, who says “I collect songs about marijuana and I have about 5000.” He sent them to me on a USB stick and I’ll be featuring material from this treasure trove of reefer music for some time to come. This week we’ll hear cuts by Fats Waller, Andy Kirk & His Twelve Clouds Of Joy, Baron Lee & the Blue Rhythm Band, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Bea Foote, Don Redman, Bill Rogers, Trio Garnica Ascencio, Hermanos Bañuelos, Herbert Payne, McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, Lucille Bogan, Cleo Brown, Cow Cow Davenport, Tampa Red & The Chicago Five, Curtis Jones, and Josie Miles.
