JOHN SINCLAIR RADIO SHOW 1054 – THE DELTA SOUND

Episode 1054 is coming from my hotel room at the Citadines Bastiile Gare de Lyon in Paris, where I’m appearing in a show dedicated to the art of the late Michael Kelley of suburban Detroit and Los Angeles at the Musee Bourse de Commerce. They’ve titled the show after my blues work in verse, Fattening Frogs for Snakes, so I’ve decided to make an hour of music from the Mississippi Delta highlighting the great artists who have arisen there, including Robert Johnson, Honey Boy Edwards, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Elmore James, Earl Hooker, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Koko Taylor, Hound Dog Taylor & the Houserockers, J.B. Lenoir, James Cotton, Jimmy Reed, the King Biscuit Boys, Little Walter, Magic Sam, and Magic Slim & the Teardrops.

JOHN SINCLAIR RADIO SHOW 1053 – BIRD FLIES SOUTH & EAST

Episode 1053 is coming from our temporary Radio Free Amsterdam headquarters in my daughter Sunny’s house in Eastpointe MI with an hour of music by Charlie Parker called Bird Flies South & East, featuring recordings with Latin jazz ensembles and string orchestras from right around the turn of the mid-20th century in honor of the passing of Bird on March 12, 1955. In 2022 we celebrated the centenary of Parker’s birth on August 26, 1922 and now we commemorate his passing at the age of 34, on the same day Jack Kerouac was born in 1926.

Episode 1042 is coming from RFA headquarters in Detroit’s Cass Corridor and is centered on an obscure recording project that Tom Worrell and I did in New Orleans a few years ago, sponsored by our pal Frenchy but never released, which involves a small set of poems composed by Worrell, recited by myself, and recorded with Tom on piano and assorted helpers in a little studio off of Oak Street. It’s called The Trump Chronicles and in my estimation it’s a brilliant set of satirical works in twisted rhyme schemes that skewer and roast the guy I call Resident Rump. Intermixed are some other pieces Tom and I have recorded together and some of his solo works from the album titled Fess Up, plus a new trio number.
