Today, we’re diving into the life and legacy of Motown legend Barrett Strong.

He passed away over the weekend at the age of 81, and although born in West Point, Mississippi, when came to Detroit after World War Two, the Motor City is became where he made his name.

To dive in on this, I’m joined - from all away across the pond in the UK - by Adam White.

His excellent book is Motown, The Sound of Young America; and he writes the West Grand Blog, where if you want to keep up with what’s happening in the Motown music world it’s a great place to go.
