We discuss songs artists have recorded in tribute to other artists.
Jim got to go to the Motown 60th anniversary celebration in Detroit. This is his report.
What’s Jim been digging lately? Some moody rock by Alexander Orange Drink (of the So So Glos), Brazilian-inspired pop by Winter & Triptides, and a Stevie Wonder cover by the great John Prine.
Fan Mail Week continues. Glenn Ow offers up some Motown rarities. And Mackensi Crenshaw counts down her five favorite new retro soul songs.
Listener Mackensi Crenshaw writes back with her classic Motown top 10 list (per Patrick’s suggestion). And Intern Sam, another young Motown fan, counts down his list too.
The conclusion of our conversation with Paul Barker of the Motown Museum. He talks about plans for a massive expansion of the museum, plus he reveals his favorite classic Motown artist (hard to dispute this pick).
You’ve heard about the legend of Intern Sam. Now meet Sam Lisker, the college student who helps us out with SuburbsPod.com. He talks about being 20 going on 40.
The listeners program the show! We respond to your correspondence. With songs by The Clash, Ellen Foley, John “Cougar” Mellencamp and more! (Plus, we catch “Bullets Fever” and set the record straight about something dumb we said on an earlier episode.)
