Adam White, co-author of “Motown: The Sound of Young America”

Adam White is a veteran music writer whose work has appeared in “Rolling Stone,” “NME,” and many more.  His new book, written with Motown’s Barney Ales, is “Motown: The Sound of Young America.”  It’s full of incredible photos and illustrations from the Motown archives, as well as original insight into the founding of the label and its day-to-day operations.   We had a great discussion on the decade-long labor of love he took in putting the book together, how Motown influenced The Beatles and vice-versa, and just how controversial tambourines can be.
