John Sinclair Radio Show 874 – Minnie The Moocher

Episode 874 is coming once again from Radio Free Amsterdam’s Detroit headquarters in the Cass Corridor where I’m featuring another hour of music from the vast storehouse of reefer and other drug and period tunes from the 1920s and ‘30s sent to me by one of my favorite listeners, including these gems from the ‘30s by Cab Calloway, Django Reinhardt & Freddie Taylor, Howard Armstrong, Jimmie Lunceford & His Orchestra, Bessie Smith, The Harlem Hamfats, Louis Armstrong, Mississippi John Hurt, Slim & Slam, Hermanos Bañuelos, Arsenio Rodríguez, Rosa Eskenazi, Kokomo Arnold, Gene Krupa, Gus Cannon’s Jug Stompers, and Stuff Smith & His Onyx Club Boys.
