A real live Motown-to-Flint connection visits the studio! Flint's very own Norma Fairhurst, of the Velvelettes, dishes with Fish about Motown "in the day", Little Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, Berry Gordy, and more, and how the Velvelettes got their start.
Norma went to both Flint Central and Southwestern, graduating from Southwestern.
Motown founder Berry Gordy's sister Esther Edwards took the group shopping for the outfits they are wearing in this photo, at the famous Detroit's Hudson's Department Store. They then had their photo taken at the Hudson's studio. This is the second picture ever taken of the young, original Velvelettes.
