Indeed both Rare Earth and The Flaming Ember.   What great bands they are. To me in Detroit in 196-71 they were the two best rock and roll band in the Motor City. Nobody could touch them.

    Douglasm,
 I guess we missed him. I Met him at a Gospel gig downtown that
Laura Lee performed at. He was looking good, and gave me his business card. His records were big in the D back in the day.

TOAD nICE TO talk to you. Heres one I dont think anyone mentioned Kenny Martin who recorded on the King-Federal-Delux conglomerate out of Cincinatti ohio. Still going strong. I talk to him every once in a while. Also Billy Davis, Hank Ballards guitar player for twenty some years. Run in to him every once in a while. Domt know if you knew Marilyn Bond She was quite active in Detroit music in early days. She passed away in July 08. Also how about George Young and the Youngsters still around. He replaced the host of I think Club 1270.BMD

Hey BMD,
 
Billy Davis is on the bill with the Jive Five here in Maine on Nov. 8.  At least I think it's the same Billy Davis.

BMD,
 
I cant believe that you knew Marilyn Bond.  She lived in NY and worked as an actress at the Lane Theater for awhile.
 
We have bought several records and videos from her over the years.  We talked on the telephone a few times a year.  I was out of touch with her for the last few.  But one of her friends told us she passed away in July. 
 
She told us she worked at CKLW and wrote teen magazine articles.  She had some great videos for sale of all those old shows. 
 
One of her best friends, Robin Seymour lives in LA.  He does infomercial productions out there.  He is a fantastic man and well respected in the industry in LA.  Do you remeber him at all?  He had a show called Swinging Time  at CKLW. (Thanks for those call letters-I forgot them). 
 
When I was a preteen and went to Windsor on vacation,  I had a terrrible crush on Dave Shafer and Tom Shannon (1964-65).  They were the handsomest devils and too old for me but I adored them. 
 
Are they still around?

           Pnyyoung,
    When we were teens, Ray monette and I had a group called the "Electras" and played on Robin Seymore's "Swingin' Time" TV show.
     The day we played it, Dione Warwick sang "Walk on by" on the show,
and we got a chance to meet her. Ray went on to play many sessions
 in Detroit in the late sixties, and joined Rare Earth for 30+ years.
    He now is with the Funk Brothers, and took the seat vacated by
 Joe Messina, next to the great Eddie Willis. [See the Motown Folks
 thread below this thread for some pics]
      It is great to have you posting with us here, and I am sure you will enjoy this music village. Lots of wonderful people, with some great
 stories and memories.
  The best,
toad

I wasnt alive in the 1960's but I do know about Robin Seymour and Swingin' Time. It was Detroit's version of American Bandstand. I got a bootleg DVD of some artists from that show including some Motown people and folks from Mitch Ryder, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The COD's, Leslie Gore, and the Everly Brothers.

Robin Seymour was one of Detroit/Windsor's top DJ's.

Yes, the same Marilyn Bond. Was a wonderful lady. Knew everything about Detroit music. She knew everyone. She died of Cancer and had been quite ill for the last couple of years.   SHE PUT ME INN TOUCH WITH rOBIN SEYMOUR MANY TIMES when he was in town,  not sure about Tom Shannon and Dave Schaeffer. But Lee Allan is still here in Detroit alot..BMD
