Approximating from an LA Times article on a homeless man who almost daily plays on the "public" piano at Union Station:

'Hearing the song come on over the loudspeaker system, he pointed out that it was sung by Chubby Checker. The writer added - a classic example from Motown.

Say what? Shocked

mike--do you  really  think  any  28 yr old editor  ever  heard  of  Cameo-Parkway?

Seriously,doubt  many  current editors  of  "feature pieces" could  name  any  Motown acts.  Remember--the average guy never cared about labels--and  forget

Happens ALL the time.  If you let it, it will drive you crazy.  Not helped but shoddy "research" sources on the internet.  You can be young and still get your facts straight, but that's too hard for them.

To the general public, the word "Motown" often is a synonym for "Soul".
