Norman Otis Richmond discusses his recent article, "Remembering the Late Milton Blake on the 70th Anniversary of His Birth." Richmond and Blake were comrades in revolutionary spirit, music and radio broadcasting. They created the Black Music Association (BMA) Toronto Chapter in 1984, which supported the cultural boycott of South Africa.

Richmond recounts how Blake, a Pan-Africanist, helped persuade the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Science (CARAS) to add Black Music Awards categories into the 1985 Juno Awards. Rhythm & Blues and reggae were added but there was a continued fight to have Calyposo added as a separate category. Milton Blake became a popular radio host.

Richmond also commented on the mega-movie "Equalizer," and condemned it as Russophobic (the evil crime lord was even named "Vladimir Pushkin").
