The John Sinclair Radio Show 532: Somebody Blew Up America



Episode 532 is once again coming from our comfortable home at the 420 Café in Amsterdam and as promised tonight’s show is an Amiri Baraka spectacular honoring the great poet, playwright, editor, novelist, essayist, political activist, social philosopher and Great American whom this writer has followed faithfully for more than 50 years. This episode centers on Baraka’s speech on Charles Olson & Sun Ra at the 4th Charles Olson Memorial Lecture at the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester MA on Saturday, October 19, 2013. The lecture is illustrated here with several excepts from works by Sun Ra and followed by Baraka’s reading of “Somebody Blew Up America” and other poems, inclusing his historic recordidng of “Black Dada Nihilismus” with the New York Art Quartet icirca 1964 for ESP-Disk Records . I’d like to thank Steve The Fly for providing me with these crucial recordings by Amiri Baraka.
