Never Miss a GPSCNews!!!
Classy Colleagues!
I hope everyone had an unforgettable weekend! I recently learned that email service providers (such as Gmail) will sometimes automatically filter GPSCNews emails to the "spam" folder without your knowledge! This prevents you from hearing about awesome events! However, there is a solution! Email service providers will never filter emails from addresses in your contact list! By adding gpsc-cc@duke.edu to your contact list, you can ensure that you will always receive the GPSCNews, and it will never get filtered to spam! Adding GPSCNews to your contacts is extremely simple! Please visit Add GPSCNews to your address book! for instructions.
Thanks for ROCKING!!!

The founder of Motown Records found a group of musicians who would come to call themselves the Funk Brothers and who would be the house band on all of its major hits. This band was the heartbeat of every song and this documentary, cut with archive footage, interviews and live performances finally gives them the credit that is long overdue.
