Every Single Motown 'A-Side': Little Stevie's Growing Up
Episode date - August 14, 2009
Our marathon coverage of Hitsville USA continues with our 59th program dedicated to playing every single A-side released by the label during their tenure in Detroit.
By 1971, the label had a much more corporate identity than it enjoyed in the ‘60s, but the hit parade didn’t seem to notice, while the label’s ex-child star Little Stevie Wonder proved that he had a LOT more to offer as he neared his 21st birthday.
