    Just random tidbits

    I am in the process of perusing the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll [[1995]].

    Read some rather interesting tidbits I thought I'd share here. Please feel free to share your interesting tidbits as well. They don't have to be Motown related; that's why I chose this forum.

    Teena Marie sang at the wedding of one of Jerry Lewis' sons and appeared in TV commercials at a young age. Further research via Google revealed that she also appeared on an episode of the Beverly Hillbillies in 1964. Was any of this mentioned on her Unsung episode?

    Bonnie Bramlett [[of Delaney and Bonnie]], a white husband and wife duo, was an Ikette in her younger years. She wore a wig and blackface.

    Here is a link to the IMDB entry for Teena Marie's Beverly Hillbillies appearance. She is listed as as Tina Marie Brockert.

    And video of Beverly Hillbillies episode:

    Yes, that "Beverly Hillbillies" ep was mentioned on "Unsung." It's part of Teena's legend.
    Puts me in the mind of a pint-sized Shanice singing with Ella in this vintage KFC ad:
