Hi, I’m Gene Stevens – here’s what’s coming up on our next ‘Vintage Favourites’.
This Sunday – July 23rd – marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the infamous Detroit Riot in 1967 – that ‘black day in July’. Ironically, Monday is also the anniversary of the founding of Detroit in 1701.
And so, I’m spotlighting songs about Motor City – the next in our year-long series of city-salutes … rockin’ soul songs that pay tribute to Detroit.
Plus ‘Vintage Canadiana’ birthday salutes to Ken Tobias and Ian Thomas, with many more hits than you might think.
It’s all on ‘Vintage Favourites’ this Sunday at 2, from Zoomer Radio.
