In this edition of The Nightfly, in this week containing the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King, we honor the life and mourn the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We'll hear songs written in memory of Dr. King from Nina Simone, Smokey Robinsion, and even hear from Pete Seeger accompanying civil rights activist & folksinger Brother Kirk. We'll hear from Dr. King in his own voice, along with funk, soul, jazz, gospel, and field recordings from the African-American civil rights movement. In hour 2, we'll continue with funk, soul, and jazz, and break for a set hosted by the late great WERU dj Charlie Oldham.
