Stacks Of Wax – Motown

Stacks of Wax – Motown
Here it is!  The episode of our Stacks of Wax podcast of our Saturday Night Solid Gold tribute to Motown!  That record label has been part of our lives for our ENTIRE lives! From Smokey and the Miracles and Marvin Gaye or Jackson 5 and The Supremes…Stevie Wonder, Temptations, Four Tops, and hundreds of others!  What’s the secret?  What makes a timeless Motown Hit as enduring as they are?  Why are we still listening and loving these songs after 20, 30…40…even 60 years!?  And we can feel our endorphins rushing after the first 2 seconds of these songs!  We’ll get into all that during out 2-part Saturday Night Solid Gold, and here in this podcast with a guy whose band, Rare Earth, was actually signed to the label!  Peter Rivera tells us all about his time with Motown here.
