Broadcast on SHMU FM (99.8 FM if you're in Aberdeen, shmu.org.uk if you ain't!) on the 20th August, this weeks’s edition of The Big People Music Show has a Detroit flavour, with some tracks featuring the late Bob Babbitt on bass. Bob was part of the famous funk brothers who were the session musicians for Motown in the ‘60s and early ‘70s. So there's some nice obscure soul and funk productions from the house that Berry built, and well as some tracks from their noisy neighbours The MC5 and their little brothers The Stooges. There’s also some recent additions to my musical dub basket, a wee selection of Studio 1 niceness and a few tracks from Between The Buttons, The Rolling Stones’ underrated album from early ‘67
