46. Marvin Gaye Part 2: 1970-1975 with his biographer David Ritz

…And here is where the rubber truly hits the road for Marvin Gaye, with his career kicking into frighteningly high gear as a result of the stream of classics that came tumbling out of him, one after the other, colossal works such as What’s Going On and Let’s Get It On. Featuring special guest David Ritz, author of “Divided Soul: The Life Of Marvin Gaye” and co-author of Marvin’s biggest hit “Sexual Healing,” we stop and smell the roses this go-round, as it’s not often you get a full-disclosure interview with a key eyewitness—and contributor—to some of the greatest music ever made. Not to be missed. Next Sunday, 8/21…Part 3: Marvin’s Final Decade.
