John Sinclair Radio Show 819: Ain’t Got Time For Hate

Episode 819 is coming from the cottage of my comrade Michael Donnelly’s family right on the shores of Loon Lake, Michigan, where I’m spending a couple of days before traveling over to Traverse City for Michael Moore’s film festival later this week, and today I’ve got a complete program featuring the great singer Shemekia Copeland with songs from several of her albums and a conversation with Robert Jr. Whitall & Sugar Mae Owens of Big City Rhythm & Blues magazine. I didn’t have any Shemekia Copeland recordings in my archives so I dug into several RFA programmers’ files and got some really great selections tthanks to Bruce Pingree, Cary Wolfson, Dave Kunian, and Leslie Keros.
