My Indian Red: John Sinclair Radio Show 76

TOM MORGAN’S MARDI GRAS SPECIAL (PART 1):  I met up with my good friend and colleague Tom Morgan at the new WWOZ studios in the French Market on the Tuesday morning before Mardi Gras to make a “joint production” with his New Orleans Music Show. Before I got to the studio Tom had laid down a beautiful tapestry of music and commentary on the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans, including contributions from Dr. John, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Dumaine, a bunch of Mardi Gras Indians recorded in 1956 by Sam Charters, Donald Harrison Jr, the Meters, Algiers Brass Band, Big Chief Donald Harrison Sr, the Wild Tchoupitoulas, Indians of the Nation, the Dixie Cups, the late Big Chief Tootie Montana of the Yellow Pocahontas, and the great Dave Bartholomew.
