It’s been a little while, so I believe it’s time for another edition of “Motown Remakes” on “Great Soul Performances.” Always a lot of fun, we feature those Pop, R&B and even Jazz artists that have remade or covered those great Motown classics. And of course, Motown itself covered and remade songs all the time of their own catalog by other Motown acts.
This is a special encore performance of TWO programs from January and November 2013. Enjoy and join Bobby Jay next week for another edition of Great Soul Performances.
Encore these programs starting 5pm on RadioMaxMusic.
