David Maraniss

David Maraniss discusses his latest book Once In A Great City: A Detroit Story published by Simon & Schuster. We talk about researching in the labor archives at Wayne State, interviewing over a hundred people for this project including Berry Gordy Jr and Martha Reeves, and discovering the mystical element of the story through the writing process itself.

We also hear great songs from Motown and a clip of Rev. C. L. Franklin.
