    I joined the 'Official Northern Soul App' on iphones over a couple of years ago & this app has a Motown section which has included a 'This Day In Motown History' for a couple of years or more.

    Of the three Motown facts on the site for today (April 1st) one of them just reads "A TRAGIC DAY"!? Anyone know what tragic thing happened on April 1st in Motown's history?

    I found it, it was the day Marvin Gaye was killed.

    Tom, I remember that day like it were yesterday. I had just gotten out of the shower and was getting dressed for work when the horrible news came over the radio. At first, I thought it was a sick April Fool's joke until the newscaster went on in detail. It soon became clear that this was not a joke of any kind. They were dead serious. The gut feeling that came over me was sickening. After 20 years of revering the beloved Motown artists, as I had, Marvin's death felt like a family member had died. I couldn't believe it. And, to this day, I still have trouble fathoming that Marvin's own father could do this to him.
