THE LOST CHILD, EPISODE 212: "THE GREATEST" -- REMEMBERING MUHAMMAD ALI

Playing tracks by

Sippie Wallace with Otis Spann and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, Sam Cooke and Muhammad Ali, Muhammad Ali, Memphis Minnie, Rev. J.M. Gates and more.

Episode 212: "The Greatest" -- Remembering Muhammad Ali. Originally aired June 18, 2016. This week we remember the late Muhammad Ali. Music and poetry by Ali himself, and a range of blues, soul, and funk tributes to Ali--plus a look into the little-known r&b careers of some of his opponents. We'll also enjoy some highlights from the concert--James Brown, B.B. King--that opened 1974's Rumble in the Jungle. Plus, some roots: music for boxing champ Joe Louis.
