Good episode? Give it some love!
Dan is joined by Motown legend and Supremes founding member Mary Wilson to discuss her amazing career, hardships and the new Motown documentary. Mary chronicles her life with one of the world's most famous record labels and how she and two of her best friends became the world's biggest female band. We hear about the time they met The Beatles, the British Royal Family, and how Mary's relationship with Diana Ross has been tested over the years, despite them remaining good friends. Mary also opens up to Dan about the tragedies she has suffered in her life, first with the death of bandmate Florence Ballard and then the loss of her son Rafael in a devastating car accident.
Dan challenges Mary to give The Five songs that mean the most to her in a Supremes Special Edition, and she also takes on Shuffle, Delete, Repeat.
