Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll

This is the second of two podcasts presenting some little known sides of Motown records -- such as more big name acts you might not know were on the Motown family of labels. And even though Motown Records is best known for its Black performers, it created a successful label just for White rock artists, too (and even named it after one of those acts).

This episode also spotlights a famous Motown girls group with a unique history worth hearing.

The Motown Records roster also included a television and movies action hero who found a way to make hit records when he wasn’t hitting bad guys.


And there’s the only top 200 Billboard-charted album by someone who has an American national holiday named in his honor. That famous and revered someone was on Motown, too.
