The Temptations & The Four Tops ruled the charts in the 60's and 70's with their Motown sound. Founding members Otis Williams and Duke Fakir, are still touring with a new line up and selling out venues across up and down the country. They'll be Craig's guests, giving us some stories from back in the day.

At 8pm Craig gives you 30 minutes of back-to-back tracks in The Trunk of Funk.

We continue to chart The History of Women In Funk & Soul, shining the spotlight on another legend, this week with Candi Staton.

And as 6 Music celebrates Ireland we'll be playing some 'Dublin Funk'.

And as always we open up the playlist to you for the section of the show we called The Spinage au Trois.
