    Thank you WestGrand. I really do appreciate coming here every year and being wished a Happy Birthday. Thank you my friend.

    Marv

    Marv, you are also most welcome here on every single one of your Un-Birthdays, LOL

    You, and anyone else signed in at the time, are also welcome to post pics here of any Motown related people, on the occasion of their Birthday being remembered.

    For example, today is Paul Riser's Birthday, if you can locate a pic.

    But, again for example, it is also Estelle Axton's Birthday.

    So, pics of notable non-Motown names from the general world of entertainment are also most welcome here, when remembering them on their Birthdays.

    Time does not permit me to do all of this myself.......

    Quote for the Day:


    "I knew Dale Warren from Cass and one day, right out of the blue, he called to tell me that there was a paid position playing trombone at Motown and that I should come down.

    Ok now that's a good idea. I will do that. Thanks WestGrand (is it ok I call you that?).

    Sure Marv, it can be WestGrand, West or WGB.

    When I registered as a member, it was the first name that came to mind.

    I felt certain it would have been taken but, just while I was thinking of an alternative, I tried it.

    I was absolutely astounded to find it was available.

    Lowell said he could make it wstgrndblvrd, unless I wished to use the full name. I felt if I did use the full name, it could then be abbreviated in posts.

    Of course, I'm acutely aware that really it's a bit of a nerve because, as you might remember, I'm actually based in the UK.

    Which seems just about as appropriate as someone from the US using the name 'Abbey Road', 'Penny Lane' or even 'The Cavern Club' on a Beatles forum, based in Liverpool......

    I thought about using the name "Philip Duke of Edinburgh" LOL!

  10. #4460
    Ah, well it's probably for the best that you only thought about using that name LOL

    For a start, it's not such an easy one to shorten, except perhaps to P.D.of E. Which would then make you sound like a Government department.

    And had you decided on simply being known as Prince, we'd all be sat here reading your messages, thinking "But how can this be? He's been dead for over three years....??" LOL

    Hey west,you could've called yourself..east,but then we would've thought that you were the last member of the-eastside kids,hehehehehe!!!

    Isn't it ironic that "that" "Prince" has been dead for over 3 years, but the other is dinosaur and does not look like he's going anywhere! LOL!

    Quote for the Day:

    "Motown came forth with a recording contract for me, a management contract, and a songwriter's contract - which shocked me.

    Then I was told "Sylvia, we'll get to you as a singer. But in the meantime we've got all these artists and they have no material. You're going to have to write."

    I said "OK". Because I was kind of shy anyway. And so that's what I started doing. I got into it, and the hits started coming." - Sylvia Moy, Detroit Free Press, 2016.

    Quote for the Day:


    "I haven't had the chance to see it, but the fact that they saw fit to put up that statue is beyond my wildest dreams. Any time that people think enough of you to put up something that is everlasting is only going to make you feel good.

    I think that other than Elvis, I am Memphis's favourite son - I'm pretty close to number two.

    The thing about Elvis is that he is a lot more popular in death than he was when he was alive - but I would rather that they come while I'm here."

    Remembering the man with the moves on what would have been his 100th birthday on September 30th.............Cholly "Pops" Atkins!

    That's a great pic of 'Cholly' Atkins, Marv.

    Thanks for posting it, to illustrate his Birthday.

    You've caught me out here. I haven't even posted Birthdays for yesterday, September 29th, so better hurry to get this thread back in order!

    I've also learned something. When I saw your post, I thought "that's strange, I thought it was Cholly Atkins' birthday recently". I checked back, and found I had it noted as September 13th.

    Did some more research. While it's true that quite a few sources do state Cholly's birthday as September 13th, I now believe you are correct, and that today, September 30th, is quite appropriate.

    That said, are you absolutely sure that today is the 100th anniversary of Cholly's birth (making it 1919?)

    All the sources I can find are stating 1913 as the year he was born?

    Quote for the Day:
    "Even though there is no forum for me on the radio for the kind of music I sing anymore, I am still excited about having a career where I can sing the best music in the world, and people will come and hear me because of the hit records I've had in the past." - Johnny Mathis


    It's true! I was there.

    Quote for the Day:

    "When I came to England, I was a very shy, introverted young woman. I hadn't had a real teenage life at all, because of what had happened to me.

    I came from a very segregated way of living in America, and then suddenly there I was, this little black girl from Watts, hanging out with The Rolling Stones in England.

    For the first time in my life, I was free."
