Show Notes

Day 15

The Address: 2648 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, Michigan, Hitsville,USA

The Story: We dare you to try and make a top 10 Motown favorites list. We dare you.

You’d have to narrow down Stevie Wonder’s entire catalog.

You’d have to choose between solo Michael or The Jackson Five.

You’d have to debate who was better: Lionel Richie, Marvin Gay, or Smokie Robinson.

You’d have to make some seriously tough choices. There are just too many hits!

We’re talking iconic, era-defining, hits.

What started on Grand Boulevard in Motor City is a legacy that has transformed the world, defined music as we know it today, and given us a list of classics so long that it’s safe to say there will never be another influence as powerful as that of Hitsville, USA.

Leave everything you think you know about this story behind. We’re going deep into the crates for some trivia and shocking facts!
