POP Music: Motown Week!


Hitsville, U.S.A. was the epicenter of so many things- the mainstreaming of soul music, the beginning of so many huge careers and even the catalyst that would lead to the expansion of civil rights. Its enduring legacy were the sweet sounds that emanated from its walls. Luckily for us, the sounds were trapped on tape and pressed on wax, proving to be an enduring gift left to us for all time. This week we honor the little house on West Grand Boulevard that made it big, spreading the sounds of Motown to the four corners of the world.
