For this week's music feature we're going to 1960's Detroit, Michigan to highlight the music of The Temptations.

Along with acts like Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the Supremes, The Temptations became synonymous with the Motown sound of the 60s and 70s.

Musicologist Josh Ellery talks to Jesse about the history and pioneering sound of the ever changing line up that was The Temptations.
