Culture Corner with contributor John Morrison, hosted by Raina Douris

John Morrison is back with a new edition of World Cafe’s Culture Corner! This week, John dives into the many projects of musical mastermind, George Clinton, who recently turned 80 years old. Along with Parliament Funkadelic – which drew inspiration from funk music, Jimi Hendrix, and The Beatles – his long legacy includes writing for Motown, producing albums for bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, and shaping a generation of ‘90s rap and hip-hop artists. Enter the rich musical world of George Clinton, on the next World Cafe.
