Re: Motown Weekend BBC Radio2

Thank You, Cinderella for posting this thread. My favourite music is Tamla Motown and Northern Soul.
I recorded this programme last night on my SkyQ box and l am listening to it now. I just love it! So many wonderful memories of the great time l had in that era.

Thank You again.

The next Tamla Motown track coming up on my jukebox (in about 30 minutes) is "Destination Anywhere" by The Marvelettes, from their Sophisticated Soul LP (1968):
