Restored Video Relives The Glory Of The Motown Era
PBS' MY Music feature will highlight a wonderfully restored video of a classic pop music show this Saturday.
Murray The K was a New York DJ who was known for breaking in some of the biggest acts of the '60s golden era of pop music, and he had several national TV shows that highlighted the rapidly changing '60s music scene.
In 1965, he recorded a TV special called 'It's What's Happening now, Baby'. That special was recently digitally by TJL Productions and will air on Saturday night locally on WGVU Channel 35.
The show features several Motown artists including a clip of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas performing 'Nowhere To Run' in the Ford assembly plant in Detroit.
Other Motown artists recorded singing around Detroit are the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye anad SMokey Robinson and the Miracles.
Here's a preview clip.
And here's a clip of Martha Reeves performing on the assembly line in Detroit.
You can watch more clips of the special on the TJL Vimeo page. The entire restored special will air at 7pm Saturday on WGVU.
