The Jewel Case: Northern Soul, Civil Rights, Friends

Lots of goodness to cover this - Jams will be kicked out with the MC5- we’ll delve into some Northern Soul with a tribute to the late Lou Ragland, celebrate a Sex Pistol’s birthday, hear some prog- rock-sampling hip hop with Madvillains, take a look at the bond between jazz and the Civil Rights movement with Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, and several others, plus Peter Tosh, Wanda Jackson, Beastie Boys, The Kinks, Kristin Hersh, and MANY more, as well. Sound cool?
