I’m so Dizzy, my head is spinning

This evening at 8 pm on Radio 4 there is a show “Diz for Prez” about Dizzy Gillespie’s short-lived Presidential campaign, where the campaign and manifesto (pull out of Vietnam, recognise China, pro-civil rights) are discussed.

Ponder what would have happened if Dizzy had won and Miles Davis had been appointed head of the CIA (as Dizzy pledged).

    Pull out of Vietnam, work with China and promote Civil Rights? The US of A would never go for such wacky ideas!
