Trouble With the Feds

by Brother Russell



Brother Russell calls himself "Melba Jackson" and places a call to talk radio host Mike East. Austin, TX, circa 1993. He and his friends record the phone call directly off the radio and the rest is history. This track is from "Radio Jihad", which was released on cassette in 1994 and on CD in 1996 and has long been out of print.
