American music has been a global standard bearer for a century, in part for its ability to shift dramatically with society. Two Motown insiders talk about how the legendary record label resisted and then embraced change in the ‘60s. Funk Brother Dennis Coffey and WDET weekend host Jay Butler join hosts Stephen Henderson and Laura Weber-Davis, with commentary by WDET DJ Ann Delisi.

Laura is thrilled to be working at Detroit’s legendary public radio station, WDET. Whatever she is doing at this very moment, she’d rather be listening to RadioLab.
