This evening on “Great Soul Performances” it’s time once again for “Motown Remakes.” Those are the fantastic songs that came out of Motown in Detroit and were covered and remade by the top Soul and R&B artists, the top Pop artists and were also passed around in-house, and were remade by other Motown artists as well. We always hear versions we never knew existed, and that’s always a lot of fun. So, on tap we’ve got: Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, Jackie Wilson, the Isley Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, the Monitors, Margie Joseph, Michael McDonald, David Ruffin, Luther Vandross, the Marvelettes, Marv Johnson, the Elgins, the Miracles and many others. It kicks off at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT, & 4PM PT. I can’t wait. I hope you’ll join me for “Motown Remakes” on “Great Soul Performances” here at the home of the hits, RadioMaxMusic.Com.
This afternoon on “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80’s,” the playlist will contain songs by: The Jacksons, Dionne Warwick, Babyface, Melba Moore, Ray, Goodman & Brown, Gary “U.S.” Bonds, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rodney Franklin, Gerald Alston, Michael McDonald, Diana Ross & Lionel Richie and many many more. It commences at 5PM ET, 4PM CT, 3PM MT & 2PM PT, to be followed by the encore of last evening’s “Great Soul Performances” at 7PM eastern time. So I’ll see you later ‘gator on RadioMaxMusic.com.
