Capital Radio, 1-17-22, MLK Day Edition

Martin Luther King Day opened a panorama of music of struggle, uplift and fighting the power, in folk, jazz, soul and funk, hoping to bolster efforts to overturn the rising voter suppression and white supremacist meddling in education. 

Started with a salute to the enduring voices of Ronnie Spector, Rachel Nagy of the Detroit Cobras and Five Satins stalwart Fred Parris, who all died in the past week. Closed with a trio of songs from songwriter Dallas Frazier, who also left us Friday at 82.
