This week, we spotlight the smooth R&B vocal harmonies of “The Spinners”!
The Spinners were formed in Ferndale, Michigan, in 1954. They enjoyed a string of hit singles and albums during the 1960s and 1970s. Producer Thom Bell was responsible for most of this success. Today, the group continues to tour, with Henry Fambrough as the only original member.
The group is also listed as the “Detroit Spinners” and the “Motown Spinners”, due to their 1960s recordings with the Motown label. These other names were used in the UK to avoid confusion with a British folk group also called The Spinners. On June 30, 1976, they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2015, they were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Spinners have been called “a renowned show group whose super-smooth producer inhibits improvisation”.
We’ll play Spinners hits like, “It’s A Shame,” “I’ll Be Around,” “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love,” “One Of A Kind (Love Affair),” “Then Came You,” “The Rubberband Ban,” and “Working My Way Back To You”.
And don’t forget to call in your requests or text them to us at (806) 350-1009! It all happens this Saturday evening from 6:00 pm until 10:00 on 100.9 The Eagle!
