Motown The Musical

Although I was born in the early 80’s, I grew up with a lot of 60’s music, because my parents enjoyed it and so had plenty of it in the house. So I’ve always enjoyed listening to tracks from that era, including the hits of Motown.

But I have enjoyed a little bit of socialising, we had more issues with the kids playing outside our house, and the UK was gripped by footage from our biggest gameshow scandal. So I hope you enjoy!
