Norma Barbee Fairhurst of the Velvelettes Motown Girl Group Fish & the Flint Chronicles

    • Society & Culture

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, and kept Motown in business early on.

Norma went to both Flint Central and Southwestern, graduating from Southwestern.

This is one of our earliest shows recorded at WFNT radio in Flint.  Fish is joined by co-host, Jim Hargrove, and a guy drilling on the roof.  Audio quality is a little suspect...
