Were some of Motown's recordings too advanced for radio at the time?

Listening to the recently released Carolyn Crawford song, "Lover Boy", once again, I feel this jaw-dropping marvel at the sheer volume of high-quality songs that not only were unreleased, but never even reused on other artists. You really have to appreciate it when you read from the writers how Motown encouraged creativity and taking chances.

Something like "Lover Boy", to me, is so beautiful. I do understand there was literally so much recording going on, no way all of them could come out, but was this, like some other Motown recordings, too advance for the time?

Frances Baugh of SMV Fan Club

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Frances Baugh who used to run the SMV Fan Club out of Brooklyn, NY? How can I get in touch with her?

In case you are unfamiliar SMV stands for Supremes, Marvelettes, and Vandellas Fan Club.

Are any other forum members past members of the SMV? I am interested in obtaining some of the newsletters that were published, especially on the Marvelettes.
