Show Notes

Hollywood in the 1960s looked for independent productions to distribute and the trend in society was to turn to Motown and Stax Records for creative Urban scores. Soul music guaranteed movies with an edge and stars emerged, such as Quincy Jones and Isaac Hayes. Today, we celebrate Black and Brown compositions that made the 1960s sweat!

Broadcaster Joe Lyons checks out the iconic Musso and Franks restaurant on his Backlot report, with news and notes that reference Hollywood's past.

This show is dedicated to the memory of my father, Manuel Pacheco, who was a big fan of the movies and the music showcased in this episode and served as my inspiration throughout my career.
