John Sinclair Radio Show 759: Flip Flop And Fly

Episode 759 is coming once again from the Radio Free Amsterdam studios in Detroit’s Cass Corridor with a program of msuic dug out of my archives, where I went looking for one thing and came up with two totally other things: a set of baseball rhythm & blues songs by Buddy Johnson, The Treniers, Sam Bush, Les Brown, and Mabel Scott, lifted from Bob Dylan’s great radio series called Theme Tme Radio some years ago, and music from two volumes of the Atlantic Records Rhythm & Blues Story by Big Joe Turner, The Coasters, Ray Charles, Clyde McPhatter, The Drifters, and The Robins, plus a closing number just received from my friend J.P. Morgan in Holland.
