Scottish author, football pundit, broadcaster and iconoclast, Stuart Cosgrove, talks about his two recent books, Detroit ’67 and Memphis ’68.  The books explore two US cities in two crucial years.  Think Classic Motown icons like Smokey Robinson, the Temptations and Marvin Gaye (just a few crucial years before What’s Going On); Otis Redding dying in a plane crash; the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr; race riots across America: musical riches; social and political impoverishment – a time of great change, with an incredible soundtrack….  ‘Erudition, lightly worn, mixed with pub banter, lightly sworn’ Peter Ross (The Herald) // ‘Cosgrove weaves a compelling web of circumstance’ The Independent
