DETROIT (AP) — A plan to increase the size of a Detroit freeway is threatening a recording studio that welcomed the likes of Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy and Eminem.
The United Sound Systems building is the spot where Gordy cut a record that would lead the way to the Motown dynasty and Franklin laid down the vocals to her 1980s hit, "Freeway of Love."
The Detroit Free Press reports Wednesday (http://on.freep.com/17SUQN6 ) the structure could be leveled as part of a project to reconstruct Interstate 94.
It's not going to happen without a fight, however.
The Detroit Sound Conservancy is a nonprofit that aims to preserve and share the city's music history. Leaders of the group have begun the process of trying to find an alternative to destroying the revered music house.
