"And my very, very special guest, one of the great ladies of song, Miss Mary Wilson. And you've taken us on this journey through the Motown. How you guys finally broke through and got to Berry Gordy on all of a sudden you had this great song writing team. You were writing songs for these three gals known is the Supremes on It was one hit after another. Did you read it? You said to me something early before we even started the interview the first song that you recorded. You said Why didn't particularly like that? No, I hated it. I really did I, but that's the one that exposed your talents. There is so if she was you Song was weirded out. Love shows you that's when we all discovered that the supreme It was our first number one. Yeah, it really was. And And so what? I'm bring you up to date on How and why We didn't like it because it's very important. People around the world loved with a love. So he was number one. However, when Holland Dozier, Holland Bryant heading and Lamont Dozier brought it to us, they said, This is gonna be a smash. So we heard it. And we're like, Oh, not that song has no harmonies show you all felt the same way. Yeah, it wasn't just was it was it wasn't just me. It was not Because we thought we could really sing If you listen to what I love go the lead is thinking one thing in the background is all unison. Unison is harmony. We came from an era where harm harmony forever for sure. When we grew up with the McGuire sisters addresses all these kind of things you know, so harmony was a four left harmony for us was great and we were good at the harmony. So anyway, we said guys, this is not in there. Plus marking the Vandellas where R and B. You know, everyone was already well. This song was not R and B, so we were not thrilled about it. I remember telling any holiday I said, you listen way need to get a hit Because if we don't get a hit, our appearance is going to send us to a college gonna make us go to college. What a terrible thing that I know. So, guys, so young people don't listen to me. Okay on this one anyway, That's how we found. C s. So So. So it's the guys that listen, Trust is this is gonna be what we were low on the totem pole because at Motown if you didn't have a hit record, you were nobody. Okay, The important people of Motown. Whether produces the writers accounted all the lawyers. Everyone was bigger than the artists. The artists have always been very low. Nothing has changed. Nothing right. We still have the public. They They don't understand. Don't know that they see the visual Now that we at s O anyway, so we had to record the songs they broke because we were low on the totem pole. We recorded it. And hated it. And then, of course, they brought Baby love, which became our number one in the U. K s O. We had five consecutive number ones that Holland Dozier Holland wrote. So Use later. I had to eat my words. Okay. You guys were right. No. You recorded baby Love was number one in the UK And this was what year? That was 1964. So this is the Beatles here? Well, okay. Okay. That's when you guys okay? You guys here in America. Welcome The Beatles. The borders open up for the United States and the UK and Europe, actually, and then, But we had our number one end in the UK and Europe. And so we opened up the borders for America coming in. Yeah, it was different for them. So whatever you guys experience here in America with the British invasion new for they, they experience it there. In fact, one of the newspapers in the U. K said. Three black Nikolas is have just landed on the shores of suits have just let them ensures a break. When we're like, Where where we're wear my tanker. Did you say vigorous is legal asses? Well, e don't even know how to respond to that. But we didn't either. So anyway, that's what was happening in 1964. The borders of the world opened up. And that's why I've always said and not just myself, but a lot of artists. We get together. We said the music has been the ambassador for the world absolutely brings brings cultures together, right? Better than politicians could ever do is is that what was that? That's true? So anyway, My point is, is that we had the British invasion here and in the UK we the Supremes, three black, beautiful French graces. I think helped To show you know the world that black was beautiful, which other time when women were not equal? I mean, I remember traveling all over Europe they would know. CEO women around the world like now, not right. So we were, like, really, You know, we were like, three. You had your Josephine Baker. He had a lot of wonderful Ruth. But you had all the incredible talents were talking about Ruth Brown. But still you did not have CEOs and the in those places. Well, now we saw that, would you all of a sudden now the music. Was your avenue to great. I don't want to use the word power. But all of a sudden you walked on the stage. You had power were here. It was that, But I'd like to put it and I agree with you. I'd like to put it in the way of saying that music was something that is almost like money. Okay, The green people respond to money. If you have money, you're powerful. What we found in the sixties that we were women, which brought women up to a certain standard. But also it showed that women were not only beautiful, but they were professional..

"My Life as a Supreme Charlie Atkins did the choreography for most of the Motown groups. How did you work with him to get the movements for your songs, But with the sessions like hard E? I'm saying real hard. To learn how to do choreography is it's It looks easy when you see it on stage, but to go through every movement Charlie had is working where If if we have one song where I love that wasn't aware that I love go and brought our hands all the way around the head on the way down made a complete circle so Charlie would spend a whole day On that movement to get us to to move it exactly The same speed the same. You know the same angle. It was for me. Always very easy Choreography. I dance very easily. Florence was a bit awkward. And and what? She would become very upset with herself because she was awkward, and Charlie was a kind of guy. Who is very hard, but he's a sweetheart. And so his whole approach would be Florence. Now I want you to get the step. You know, you have messed it up three times and bark, and sometimes she'd go in tears. Now Diana's kind of person that Will work very hard on something she realizes She can't get it. She will study it. Everything. Just sit there and really just concentrate. And I've I've learned mine. I'm over the corner, just sitting down, you know, cooling it. So the whole key now is that people remember the choreography. Just as much as they remember the song so that I'm that makes me know that it was all worth it. Was it his idea for you to hold up your hands when you're doing? Stop? Yes. Stop. That's the famous one. Mm hmm. Let's talk about the records soon more you had mentioned earlier that when you joined Motown that they really didn't know what kind of material to give you on after a few years of recording different people songs You were basically given torto Holland Dozier in Holland, right? Who wrote and produced your material. What was the difference between what they were doing with you and what had been done before? Harry. I don't know. That has been something that I've wondered about. It was it was like we were meant to be with them. It was It was like finding the perfect Taylor the minute we work with them. It was just like magic. In fact, they saved us. A toothy entire company was calling us to know hit Supremes and H D H brought us out of that, and we were able to laugh at all the other groups. That motel you know, for calling us and no hits Supremes. They're almost all of your heads. Hmm. Did they change the kind of backup singing that you were doing? Yeah. You know, I'm glad you brought that up. No one has ever really put it like then that and that is a point because Even though we gained our great records, and I will great sound with H th We also lost. Sort of the group thing, You know, I mean, what was ours before we Came to motel and that they gave Always said that that's the sound that gave us was really more Diane sound, and we did. We were her back up. Um And that was kind of sad. In a way you know that in gaining our sound, we also lost a part of our uniqueness. So I'm glad you brought that up. When they gave the group of sound that you associated more with Diana Ross with what you've been doing. She hardly approve of that. She like be fronting the group in the way that you Yeah, you know, she really did. And I cannot say I blame her. Um, I finally realized today that what Diane was doing was not so much being self centered. Is that that she felt that it couldn't be done right unless she did it. Rather than I mean, I think that's a better way of saying whether the saying she was self centered and very aggressive. That's really what I want to bring out. How did the group become Diana Ross and the Supremes instead of just the Supremes right through just the just with Diane becoming more and more popular, and, of course. At the time, people started saying that she was a spokesman. Um, and all of the attention was on her, so it just eventually led to that. Well, when you look back on it, the Supremes that such a strange history Diana Ross become became one of the biggest superstars in America. Yes, definitely flow. Ballard died at a very young age. Not too long after she left the Supremes. And most of your performances there in Europe, right. So like it was like, Oh, proof. This is true. Um, I made that decision to go to Europe and to travel around the world because I knew that if if I stay here with the Supremes as such, we've become an oldie but goodie. Around the world. They never really seen us as much so I could travel and received nice amount of money and things like that. Plus, I could regain my confidence as a singer, which I did. Now, how would you lost it? By singing only use by not growing a Z If I stopped growing at the age of 16, because I'm never saying anymore. It's like my confidence now is really good. I know I can sing. Because I do it every day, but on the same hand, because I did that I lost my American public. No, I must come back and record and let them know that. Hey, I'm back to let you know I could really shake him down. Do you love me? Do you love me? Carrie, I got you a smile so happy. What do you think about when you hear the old Supremes records? I just start listening to them Really listening to them..

It was like an award ceremony. And there was a song writer by the name of Ronnie MAC and Roddy MAC, was a lady, and I guess her name was Veronica, nobody would she accepted an award for her son who had died, I guess in the last year. So and Ronnie Mack wrote? Wrote a composition called he so fine. He's so fun. But anyway. But. The reason the Vandellas they needed a hit song. They, you know, they, they were looking for one in Hong those all came up with the song in a tribute to this Ronnie Mak, who is the wider anyway, that's, that's what they're saying. They wrote the song, I don't know what the guy you bowled with a couple of years ago said, but I mean that's, that's coming from Hoffman dosier Holland. So I mean, maybe that guy that guy was somebody was trying to impress you or I don't know. But. From what I from what I could tell that there was really nothing that, that would lead that song back to some guy that bold just telling you whatever. He was a singer. Who the guy that, that do what sang that song? No, no, no, no. The guy berry Gordy hurt Jimmy max semi, and he wanted him to record a song. Can't right now. Tour when I come back, I'll record a song. He was a good Sanger. Each hanging. Well, the fact the fact of the matter is, according to the Motown timeline. If this, whoever this guy is that you're talking about Ronnie, Nak her mom, and, and, and it was was his mom. And it was written after the it was written after whoever you're talking about was was dead. It was all Indonesian doll anyway. Thank you for the phone call. That's a little bit too much minutia right there. But nevertheless. I don't know if you were watching last night, the Tony awards. I I'm flipping back. What I watch television. What I do a lot of his, I flip. I mean I got that thing in my hand and so on flipping back and forth. And I'm watching that because I have an interest in, in the theater, I, I liked theater. I'm not gonna lie to you. It doesn't make me anything, but somebody that likes to what is in New York. Oh. See some shows I think the broad Broadway is the ultimate in, in entertainment. It is where every single actor of any chops wants to go and perform in front of a live audience. But I'm flipping back and forth last night. I got I've got the you know the Stanley Cup final game on which I'm still shocked at Boston night game. But I'm that I'm flipping back and forth. And I, I see they're about to hand out the award for best actor in a Broadway show. Well, I'm going to watch this because there's some great people up for nomination and the guy that one was the guy that I thought would win Bryan Cranston run a one for his portrayal on Broadway of how how herald Beal Howard Beale, I'm sorry. Howard Beale the central character in what was the movie network all those years ago. And now I think the Broadway run for the show ends in the next week or so, but is now on Broadway has been a huge hit there. And I'm watching Bryan Cranston accept the award. And I'm thinking, what a what a remarkable actor, this guy is. It was his second Tony award. He had one a few years ago for his portrayal of Lyndon. Baines Johnson and had the lead in the, the sitcom, Malcolm in the middle. And then, of course, his, his signature show is signature performance so far in his life was that of Walter white in the huge hit television show breaking bad. And I'm watching this guy accept the award last, I was wonderful in his acceptance speech, what a wonderful actor that how can this show get any better than you're handing in award to the guy who could be the definitive actor of his time. I mean, there are a lot of great actors that are out there and, you know, there's Pacino and, and deniro, all of the all the usual suspects out there. But this guy all he does is collect awards from his peers for being such a great great person of his craft awards ceremony. Get any better and it did. It hit the high note on a number of different things. And that's why I'm tickled a death that Matt rouse, who was the entertainment critic extraordinaire from ABC news is going to join us here at after the news at the top of the hour to talk about all of this the award ceremonies last night, the Tony awards that also some of these movies that I thought would be big winners over the weekend, and they turned out to be in some instances box office bombs, but you gotta wait.
