    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.

    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...

    Hello IMissFlo93. Regarding 90.9, I don't think that the genre changes from day to day on the station. In the weekday mornings up until 7:00pm, they play classical music; after 7:00 they play jazz,...
