    THE COOL CRITICS / MICKEY STEVENSON - DANCING IN THE STREETS

    in Radio

         On the Saturday before MOTHER'S DAY, the cool critics did a show on MOTHERS.  A dedication to mothers.  A week ago because B.B. King died, the Cool Critics did a show on BB King.  Both of the shows are available via BlogTalk to download if you want.


    THIS WEEK, after having William "Mickey" Stevenson on KINGS IN THE MORNING, I was thoroughly impressed of what that man brought to MOTOWN Records.  Mickey Stevenson put Motown Records on the map with his writings, with his producing, with his organization.  I saw his name on records, but I never knew how valuable William "MICKEY" Stevenson was the the Motown foundation. With a great foundation like MOTOWN has become, where do you think, the Commodores, Rick James, The Jackson 5, the many many MANY artists that Berry Gordy Jr & the MOTOWN company created, exposed, manufactured and more would have been had there not been a Motown Music Empire?  Today, you will hear his words, his works and learn some information on a piece of Motown.  Thank you for joining us!
