A thread to keep all Discovering Motown episodes together!

Join me (hi, I'm Steve, I run http://motownjunkies.co.uk) for a Motown radio show like no other - I promise an hour of big hits, hard to find classics and history every week. I've got carte blanche to raid the back catalogue, so if anyone's got any requests, no matter how obscure or obvious, hit me up and I'll spin them for you!

I'll post a reply each time a new episode becomes available for listening. All old episodes will be available forever, so don't worry about missing one... There'll be 6 themed "specials" aimed at a wider general audience, and then as of February 8th it becomes a weekly Motown show where I just play great tunes from the Hitsville archives, and give the stories behind the music.

All feedback and comments gratefully received. I hope you enjoy!

All shows first broadcast on Radio Cardiff 98.7FM (http://www.radiocardiff.org)

Episode 3 ("Holland-Dozier-Holland Special"), first broadcast on Radio Cardiff, December 2013

 

http://www.mixcloud.com/discoveringmotown/discovering-motown-special-3-holland-dozier-holland/

 

Another 1-hour Discovering Motown special, this time featuring big hits and hard-to-find classics from the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland writing and production team who crafted so many of Motown's most beloved Sixties hits.

 

(Once more, this was made for a general audience to gently ease them into the darker waters of the Motown back catalogue, and it's more packed with hits than anything else I've done. The original description continued: "You may not know the name, but you'll surely know the songs!"... I'm sure everyone on this forum does know the name though! :)

 

Track list:

  1. Martha & the Vandellas: Heat Wave
  2. (Main Theme: Earl Van Dyke: 6 by 6)
  3. The Supremes: Baby Love
  4. Eddie Holland: Just Ain't Enough Love
  5. Lamont Dozier: Dearest One
  6. Marvin Gaye: Can I Get A Witness
  7. Martha & the Vandellas: Come And Get These Memories
  8. The Temptations: A Tear from a Woman's Eye (there was a glitch on the recording and this one cuts off abruptly 10 seconds or so from the end - it *would* happen on the rarest track in the show...!)
  9. The Supremes: Where Did Our Love Go
  10. Four Tops: Baby I Need Your Loving
  11. The Supremes: Stop! In The Name Of Love
  12. Four Tops: Reach Out (I'll Be There)
  13. The Supremes: You Can't Hurry Love
  14. Kim Weston: Helpless
  15. The Elgins: Heaven Must Have Sent You
  16. Freda Payne: Band Of Gold (Invictus)
  17. Holland-Dozier feat. Lamont Dozier: Why Can't We Be Lovers (Invictus)

Thanks for listening!

(Aimed at a general audience, blah blah blah, you know the drill by now... Less interestingly, this was the first show recorded using my new computer to balance the sound levels properly :) )

 

Track list:

  1. Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston: It Takes Two
  2. (Main Theme: Earl Van Dyke: 6 by 6)
  3. Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell: Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing

  10. Blinky & Edwin Starr: Never Give You Up
  11. David & Jimmy Ruffin: Steppin' On A Dream
  12. Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye: Pledging My Love
  13. Dennis Edwards feat. Siedah Garrett: Don't Look Any Further
  14. Billy Preston & Syreeta: With You I'm Born Again
  15. Diana Ross & the Supremes and the Temptations: Ain't No Mountain High Enough
  16. (Incongruous Closing Theme: The Commodores: Machine Gun) (absolutely, positively not because I pressed the wrong button by mistake, no sir)
  17. The (70s) Supremes & Four Tops: Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)

KTF and thanks for listening!

Well, that was lots of fun - thanks to everyone who tuned in and messaged us with requests!

 

Hour 1 is available to listen again now - hour 2 will be up later in the week (it's being used as a midweek repeat so I can't put it up straight away - that's also why it was being done as a stand-alone episode, if anyone was wondering!)

Always glad to get feedback, requests etc. Enjoy!
