Human Nature Brings The Motown Sound (Rebroadcast)

When you think of Motown, you might not imagine four white guys from Australia belting out Smokey Robinson hits.  But those guys - the a capella group, Human Nature - became a hit in Australia, and crossed the ocean to open for Michael Jackson and Celine Dion, dancing and singing to "Earth Angel" and "I'll Be There." The guys join us to talk about being "not cool," singing in high school, how Smokey Robinson discovered them, and how they keep Motown alive.
