From Memphis to Merseyside Ep 14 ‘Nothing Stops Detroit’
Mention Detroit, and Motown comes to mind right away for most people. However, this is not the only musical legacy of The Motor City. On this episode of ‘From Memphis to Merseyside’ we take a deeper look at the incredible musical legacy of Detroit. We’ve got Motown artists like The Supremes, Stevie Wonder and The Temptations, early hard rock pioneers like MC5 and The Stooges, shock rocker Alice Cooper, and hard-working musicians like Bob Seger represented on today’s playlist, along with a few others who you may not have realised are connected to ‘The 313’. We also devote a section of today’s playlist to the devastating race riots of 1967. Out of that turmoil came some incredible music. Finally, for good measure, we’ve got artists who feature Detroit in their music even though they aren’t native to the city. We hope you enjoy our Detroit edition of ‘From Memphis to Merseyside’!
