I know he made it critical. -- promote hybrid with a machine guns and -- you'll -- repeated this same period. You had that same writers. -- disputed this saying. The product development if you will all -- development that you don't mean immunity -- board did not that there instead. Well -- mention earlier there was a special at motel on him on the phone Brothers they were the studio band that was behind all the songs and never ever got any note no relation at all. Right but it's what you go to. We start getting into the seventies. The dynamic of music didn't go minute Stevie Wonder and probably will still -- Motown. And the rising. All of his music and there was so original music I was fortunate Dick giggle credit -- -- to a lot of that stuff England. You could go home. They Eagles. -- it wouldn't buy your route to the guy who. That they did concrete. -- the so yeah. It was -- and you know it's over because. -- -- What a day -- 2000 children like interrupting you yeah you know good good good depth of them. -- did that but you should. The partisan support and apple it's a double double average wiping its alive now. Musicians you. You know we -- all different groups and pay -- Just won't give it to date most up to -- music. Is ample -- -- -- creativity. Into it now but at the same -- development relationship. For the all they -- to creativity.

Asia anymore but you'll always find. 70s80s. -- well the dial -- And I military sergeant at the minute on The Beatles mowed down. Do you know Michael Jack them. It was just -- -- novel you know what -- thirty year. Well we were mentioning this earlier that how much radio has changed at one time you to listen to one station and and here. All all your favorite music and installation starts starts specializing in any particular. Section of the music. And so you're you're right and you know now. You you want soft rock to listen once -- -- you want country -- -- one station. You want rhythm and blues who -- to another station and a longtime radio stations to mix all that music together.

They played Pat Boone was a white ours and he would cover a lot of the rhythm and blues songs he would cover some of fats Domino's -- himself. Here in New Orleans we do look at the rhythm and blues version where other parts of the country they they grew up with a pop version of the same identical solve. I hit it -- area after area but that. Pat I don't live three blocks down from out I was born -- and eat that -- charity. And the. And my brother he had a one of those -- eat and the bicycles. Which while I was rather got a right quote.

The music and -- of course Diana -- -- -- model that ties into things really went wild time favorite artists and of course made no secret that all night. I just don't know if there's a better brand of music then -- Motown music and get a chance. There's there's a special. I cannot remember. The name of -- it if it's of Motown special -- you can buy it on oil on dvd. You concede it on on showtime. And I think it's that it's -- it's yeah it's called standing. In the shadows. And it's all -- -- home Motown records got started in Detroit. And followed the studio group. That played in just about all the songs that people. People get the impression that. You know Diana Ross supremes Smokey Robinson and all these people or oral these artists record that they have their own band. Well they really -- you know there's there's a studio band unless of course like the Eagles put in in most of these. Companies especially Motown in the beginning there was the -- the most studio band that's what they did they play on all the -- and they played on the line they played. It's Smokey Robinson that they played on the marvelous played all these Motown artist. And -- never got any credit sports the the the groups of course Donald the credit. And then when they would go on tour they would have their own -- the bills were not the musicians recorded themselves. And that's the moderate a group of studio studio musicians called the phone orders to -- molten ball well. Motown it was so successful in in Detroit in the and one day. Just folded up. And left -- and and and and what it did at least some of them tried to go to Los Angeles to -- motel but.

Made it more. -- rubble The Beatles are right that all The Beatles of course went through stages when when they first had the music it was very pop push. And then today that the they -- ball to hold different brand of music which which. I think the second part of their music was better than the first port and in Lennon McCartney were great songwriters. -- -- Well nothing -- The music a lot back strain it any doubt that rock and roll it going to main server back.
