Soul Searching

The soul genre is multifaceted and has evolved a lot over the roughly 70 years it's been around. Join me each week as we explore a different subgenre, music label, or regional style of soul.

This episode of Soul Searching focuses on the famous, Detroit-based label, Motown Records. The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, and The Temptations all passed through Motown’s original headquarters, nicknamed Hitsville U.S.A.

But not all artists could reach the levels of fame that met artists like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, or Diana Ross. In this episode, we rediscover some of the overlooked acts of Motown Records – those whose albums never topped the Billboard charts.
