'Arthur Freds On Air' focuses on what is popularly known as ABA MUSIC. There is a high demand for this piece. When we say ABA Music, we mean the music made by musicians based in Aba during an era that spans 1970 to 1980. The above ten-year period is crucial as a lot of musical work done in it related to and mirrored British and American Music at that same period. My bands and I memorized several Motown songs and performed them on stage. We also worked on songs of that era but from other labels than Motown. Music from the succeeding period may be treated in this program as they become applicable.
