Betty LaVette who's fame came with the hit 'My Man - He's A Lovin' Man, is Craig's guest. She hit the top of the charts at the young age of 16 while signed to the Motown label during the golden age of black American music. She never really matched that success until 2005 but has lived an extraordinary life that would make and unbelievable film script. Betty recently released her autobiography and a new album so Craig will be getting the lowdown on both.
