If you know the music of Diana Ross and the Supremes, The Jackson 5, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Smokey Robinson, Martha and the Vandellas and Stevie Wonder…just to name a few, then you know Berry Gordy, Jr.  He is the man behind all those legendary artists, as founder of the legendary Motown record label and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who shaped the careers of many young superstar singers.  Gordy Jr. talks about his love affair with Diana Ross, their behind-the-scenes stories, spinning out #1 hits, and how life growing up in Detroit wasn’t always glamorous in the beginning.
