Wouldn't a Soulful Detroit Hall of Fame be "outtasight"...and kickstart the revitalization of downtown Detroit? Maybe something could be done in cooperation with Motown. It could rival the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Whatdayathink, y'all?

Maybe it could be part of the proposed "Motown District" or whatever they are planning on Woodward by the freeway at the old office.

That's what I'm thinking. It would be so cool to include a wing, or a room or a separate building with memorabilia from the Fortune-RicTic-Revilott-Etc. history of Detroit soul music.

You need a whole separate museum/whatever for pre and post and outside-Motown R&B, it deserves more than a room or wing.
Motown wouldn't have existed if it wasn't for the happening R&B and jazz scene here in town ...that's where Berry G drew his players from.

I wonder if Greefield Village would be interested in this kind of thing?

Is Marilyn still trying to get her museum up and running at Latin Quarters on East Grand Blvd?

Yes I am. I figure to have this July 20th show and then go camp on the owner's doorstep. The show will give me more credibility. She's already interested. This should clinch it. If not,I already have a few other buildings in mind.

I see a large restaurant, similar to The Hard Rock Cafe, down in Greek Town, displaying memorabilia from the soulful side of the city. Imagine a jukebox with representations from all those record labels in Detroit! The thing would never stop. It would need a new stylus every week. Imagine the history that could be hung on the wall or placed in the windows for visitors to see. With the advent of the casinos I see it as a valued attraction to the area! I'll book my table now!
