Weldon McDougal III Interview

Motown Guru Weldon McDougal was credited with introducing the world to the Jackson 5 back in the days when Michael Jackson was just a cute kid with a big Afro. He was an advance man for Motown Records when he met the Jackson 5 in a nightclub in Chicago where they won a talent contest. His job for Motown was to move along the careers of Marvin Gaye, Mary Wells, the Supremes, the Temptations, the Four Tops and others. But he took the Jacksons under his wing. He persuaded Berry Gordy Jr., founder of Motown, to record the boys – and the rest is musical history. Enjoy this wonderful interview.
