Every Single Motown 'A-Side': Still Struggling to Stay Relevant
Episode date - September 18, 2009
Our 64th show dedicated to playing every single Motown A-side from the label’s inception until its move to L.A. at the end of 1971, catches the label in the throes of struggling to remain relevant.
Yes, they still had chart hits, and yes, much of the material was quite good, but the label simply was not as relevant as it had once been, and the chart positions of the label’s biggest stars spoke volumes about how much had changed since the mid-60s.

Touch – The Supremes
Bless You – Martha Reeves & the Vandellas
Colour Combination – Jack Hammer
Got to Be There – Michael Jackson
I’m Still Waiting – Diana Ross
