That's 60's rock and roll, not Motown. Music isn't bad, though Doug Ingle is getting a little long in the tooth. Ron Dante hasn't aged a lick, though.....

not Motown

Yeah. I thought they said they'd go into a special Motown segment but apparently not.

I heard from a first-hand source that Hoagy bought many of his tunes from NYC tune-smiths that wrote in houses similar to the Tin Pan Alley. He is 86, so maybe his memory is a little foggy, but he is a jazz vocalist who knew the man who wrote Stardust and Skylark and sold them to Carmichael for mere pennies. Food for thought...
