Discovering Motown

Thanks Michael! This is what makes Motown the greatest record label in the world - 49 hours in, we've hardly repeated 1 song, and the quality is still right up there.

Kevin Williams

awesome as always. particularly liked the brenda holloway track and chuck jacksons take on aint no sun since youve been gone. keep up the good work :)

Discovering Motown

Thanks Kevin, glad you enjoyed it - always happy to have you listening! There are a lot more episodes in the can already (we're several weeks behind now) and many more to come after that.


Love the last track by Stevie as well.

Discovering Motown

I sometimes feel a bit guilty because I use Stevie and Gladys so often to close out the show, but they just made so many perfect final tracks!


I'm loving the Fantastic Four. MORE MORE MORE.

Discovering Motown

Stay tuned! :)

(This was recorded in a different studio than usual, so I sound a bit strange - more so than usual, even. Great records though!)
