Superb R4 doc' on Motown's brief entry into promoting black activism via spoken word albums. A great documentary with fine interviews - I bought the Guess Who's Coming Home - Black Soldiers In Vietnam LP at a soul music festival back in the 90s but never knew anything else about the label.

It was a great programme. Brought back the spirit of the times,and reminded me I about Elaine Brown who I had completely forgotten.

Alvin Hall gives a masterclass in radio journalism. Really powerful storytelling.
