    Motown on That's TV [[In the UK)

    Don't know if anyone else has picked up on the fact that there are several Motown songs that appear on That's 60s [[Freeview 75). The other night I had it on for a couple of hours in the background while I was doing other things. During that time, there were performances of:

    1 Supremes [[c1966) - I've forgotten which song!
    2 Marvin Gaye - Ain't That Peculiar
    3 Supremes - I Hear A Symphony
    4 Stevie Wonder - Uptight [[Everything's Alright)
    5 Supremes - My World Is Empty Without You
    6 Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell - Ain't No Mountain High Enough [[beautiful colour performance and my favourite so far)

    So far this morning, I've caught:

    1. Stevie Wonder - Uptight [[Everything's Alright)
    2. Supremes - You Can't Hurry Love

    No information is provided other than the name of the artist, song title and year. I haven't found any information about a playlist so it is a case of waiting for the next Motown song to be played, but as I still live in the 60s, that's not a problem for me. As the TV channel is on from 6 am to 2 am, some of the hour-long episodes may be rotated but I haven't watched enough of it to establish if there are repeats.

    And in between my original post and mowsville's update, there was a repeat of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, plus:

    Supremes - Stop In The Name of Love
    Four Tops - I Can't Help Myself

    Lovely to see these mostly B&W performances. Now, to make my day complete would be to see

    Four Tops - Reach Out I'll Be There [[for hopefully obvious reasons), although I actually prefer Bernadette, but I didn't want to call myself that!
