Episode 943 is coming from the Ralston Holistic Healing Center east of Woodward Avenue by State Fair in Detroit, where we’re celebrating tonight the 50th anniversary of the historic John Sinclair Freedom Rally of December 10, 1971 at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, a massive rally and concert featuring John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Stevie Wonder, Bobby Seale, Phil Ochs, Allen Ginsberg, Archie Shepp, Bob Seger, Edward Sanders and a host of others who met there with 15,000 supporters to demand my freedom from a 9-1/2-to-10-year prison sentence for possession of two joints of marijuana. Three days later I was released from Jackson Prison in Michigan, never to return again (so far). Our music tonight is from the 5,000-song dope music collection donated to RFA by our listener called Paul Paul. Thanks, Paul! Songs by NWA, Peter Tosh, Anthony Johnson, Aswad, Al Campbell, Anthony Redrose, Tone Loc, Robert Emmanuel, Beastie Boys, Arawak, Barrington Levy, 311, Black Uhuru, and 2PAC.
