9 – Wayne Kramer, MC5

Legendary musician and activist Wayne Kramer of the MC5 joins fringe comedian Matt Dwyer for an in depth conversation on music, prison and Wayne’s charity “Jail Guitar Doors USA”

About Jail Guitar Doors: In 1978, The Clash released the song, “Jail Guitar Doors.” The song tells the story of the imprisonment of their fellow musician Wayne Kramer. In 2007, to honor the life of Clash founder, Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg launches an initiative in England to provide musical equipment used to rehabilitate inmates serving time in Her Majesty’s Prisons in the United Kingdom. His initiative is named for that very same song, “Jail Guitar Doors.” In 2009, Wayne Kramer partners with Billy Bragg to found Jail Guitar Doors USA. Together, their combined effort continues the mission for prisoners in America. The circle is unbroken.

Matt Dwyer is emceeing a charity concert hosted by Wayne Kramer of the MC5 and Adam McKay on July 12 at the Echoplex in LA for Jail Guitar Doors. An insane amount of great musicians will be performing. Please come out and support.
