On Northern Soul (and how to shake your tail feather)

Play episode

If there’s anything Detroiters know how to do, it’s how to tap our feet and nod to the beat. And so often in history, those beats are made right here.

Local history expert, music tastemaster, and Motor City Soul Club co-founder Dan Austin joins me on the podcast to talk about Northern Soul, a genre that encompasses Motown – but there’s so much more to discover. How do you find it? What’s notable about it? He’s also talking about the return of the Motor City Soul Stomp this Saturday evening at the Marble Bar.
