Motown: Racism in Radio

Clay McMurray

Clay McMurray, former producer for Motown Records, talks about racism in the radio industry. He recalls trying to get Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved A Man" played on a particular radio station. "The program director at the time told me, 'That record will never get programmed on this station.'" McMurray eventually persuaded him to play the record overnight, and the record became a huge hit.
