The Marvelettes have today’s almost forgotten track

 

When people think of Motown girl groups, The Supremes usually come to mind first, because they were the most successful, and then Martha and the Vandellas, because they may have been the best, but few think of The Marvelettes…formed as a backing group for Marvin Gaye, hence the name, they DID have a #1 record before Diana’s girls, with Please Mr. Postman, but few others…this one always worked for me though…one of the members was married to a Miracle, and Smokey from that group wrote the song…

Greg Simpson

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then.

His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
