DSC Founder Carleton Gholz and co-Vice President LaVell Williams were interviewed by the Boston Globe for the Boston Loves Detroit fundraiser in Boston on Saturday, March 22.
It’s not all a Motown story,” says LaVell Williams, vice president of DSC. “Motown is wonderful, but there’s a lot more out there that’s dying off that no one knows anything about. We want to preserve that stuff and get it so people can access it, whether they’re doing research or they just love music. You’re missing out on a major part of musical history by not knowing what’s going on and by people dying everyday who have a story to tell.
“Somebody has to be an advocate,” says Gholz. “Unless you are doing it full time, you can’t possibly be at the meeting at 2 p.m. and at 2 a.m. be at the club making the connection with the artist. That’s a full-time job, but that’s what I want to do. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also deeply pleasurable.”
