Motown fb

On Holiday Monday, Boom marks 60 years since Motown really broke through in the UK.

We'll be scattering Motown songs right across the day - and then from 4.00pm, it's back-to-back Motown, focusing on 1959-1967 between 4.00 and 6.00 pm - and then the later years from 7.00 pm!

Plus - from 6.00pm - Dame Jenni Murray joins Boom - to host an hour of her Motown favourites and to share just how much the songs meant  to her.

For Jenni, it's something of a new departure, after some thirty years on the BBC's Woman's Hour.

"Every Saturday we'd meet in the Barnsley bus station heading for the record shop. We had six shillings and eight pence in our pockets"
