We're a Winner! 60's Soul
2020-07-19 We're a Winner! 60's Soul
I love 60's soul and will always think of Brian when I hear it. This show has some of Brian's favorites, opening with "The Boy From New York City". There are two gems from Lee Dorsey, "Working in a Coalmine" and "Ride Your Pony" and there's some James Brown and Aretha. What's not to like?
I decided early that my favorite female Motown singer was Martha Reeves, so I love hearing her in this show. I think Brian's favorite was Mary Wells, much more soulful, but you'll have to wait for another show.
This show was probably 90 minutes like most of Brian's WMUA shows, but was recorded on a 60-minute cassette, so it a little wonky at the edges. You'll want to hear Alvin Robinson singing "Something You Got" again and again.
