    Hi midnightman; thank you for your most recent post. It was very balanced, unlike some of the posters on this forum who swear that neither Flo nor Mary can sing. For what Berry wanted, Diana was...

    Hi Marv and aldub516; RJ Watkins was the first name that came to my mind also. He had a dance show and an interview show. Channel 62 was WGPR-TV at the time, owned by African Americans. Another name...

    My mother brought me the first Motown Story box set in 1970. I was so so happy to get it. I think it cost like 25 - 30 dollars at the time, which was an exorbitant price for my family. But my...

    Thank you, Sharpmoves for putting this up. I just wish the lighting for Roz and Betty was better! You can barely see their faces. Maybe one day they will have more of the American Bandstand videos...

    Thanks, Ollie9, Marv2, RanRan79! Hi PeaceNHarmony! I would agree with your statement about my posting. Yes, Mary Wilson does not have the fame that she enjoyed in the 60's and 70's. Unfortunately,...

    No, Mary did not have a "so-called" fifteen minutes of whatever. Mary Wilson has been an African American and Rock and Roll / R & B icon for over 50 years. She, Diana and Flo are absolute pioneers...

    The Ponchartrain hotel in Detroit, where I think Berry Gordy locked in the "Corporation" for the Supremes next single after "Reflections" and/or locked them in to write songs for the Jackson 5; it is...

    Back in the early days of Motown, there was the Gotham hotel - people tell me it was near John R. and Mack, it was one of the few places were African-Americans could stay. Yes, the Ponchartrain...

    My Clay McMurray story: I was invited to Debra Stubbs-Boatner's house for a get together. Enchantment along with E.J. Johnson was there. Pat Crosby was there. E.J. started to do 'Name that Tune"...

    Levi did Little Shop of Horrors but instead of his name being titled "Levi Stubbs", he asked to be titled "Levi Stubbs of the Four Tops". I believe he was asked after his role in the movie to leave...

    I was in my car driving to work when the news came on. I thought at first it was somebody's cruel April Fool's joke. I turned on the news and they confirmed that Marvin had passed away. I don't...

    AT LEAST they could invite the Velvelettes and Martha and the original Vandellas to the show. They are, I believe, the only two Motown groups with the original members still living.
  20. Man, I cannot get enough of the high steppin',...

    Man, I cannot get enough of the high steppin', harmonizing and always sharp Pips! To me, they made Gladys that much better! She had to sing over, through, and around the Pips. They were the best,...

    Ha! Snakepit; no it does not take a genius! At first I wondered why she wouldn't name them wholly, but as I thought about it, years later, that was just like Ms. Ester, always diplomatic!

    Hi Snakepit;
    I believe the "two Marvins" quote was attributed to Ester Edwards, who, to the best of my memory stated that the two Marvins were the most challenging to deal with. I don't remember...
