Arthur - Don Duprie's Real Fast Podcast #2
From Green Onions to today, Arthur talks growing up in Detroit as a musician, what Motown meant to him, and what he listens to now.
Thank you for this!
You guys are great! Love it...I agree it would be cool to hear a clip of the artists music
Let’s hear some song clips!
Would love to hear clips of the actual songs...! Best way to promote the local artists
One wonderful aspect of southwestern Michigan is the Detroit Songwriter community. We have a plethora of talented, brilliant, witty and wonderful artists who buoy each other up, promote each other and show such love; and this podcast reflects this beautifully. That the cohosts are a well informed and witty fan and a gregarious member of the songwriting world adds a nice balance to the interviews. I cannot get enough of these episodes.
