Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)! Show tracks for Sat. Sept. 29/12

The music world lost a relative unknown giant this week, Frank Wilson lost his battle with prostate cancer on Thursday. Motown aficionados and Northern Soul buffs know him well, but the general public enjoyed the fruits of his labour without even knowing it. He was a writer and producer at Motown Records. He wrote and produced hit records for Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, The Miracles, The Four Tops, The Temptations and many more. He even tried his hand at releasing his own material only to change his mind to keep writing and producing. He destroyed the single he recorded, almost all of them. Two are still in existence and fetch thousands of dollars at auction when sold. That record was Do I Love You (Indeed I Do). We open the show in tribute of Frank Wilson with some of his production work and his now famous single. RIP Frank.

We then move on the nominees for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize. We featured 10 of the 12 nominees. We start with what seems to be everyone's favourite to win it this year Alt-J(∆) and move on to my emotional pick Jessie Ware. The odds makers currently have Richard Hawley and Plan B at 4/1 to swoop the prize with Alt-J(∆) and Django Django at 5/1. There really isn't a bad album in the bunch.
