The Marvelettes were regularly waiting for the postman. Great was their joy when the postman surprised them with the news that they had scored the first #1 for Motown with their on 21 August 1961 released single.
The postman might today also deliver birthday cards to C&W singer Kenny Rogers (°1938), session musician James Burton (°1939) and singer/songwriter Jackie DeShannon (°1944).
Further, luna will remember the birthday of "Upper-Clasher" Joe Strummer (°1952) who died on December 22, 2002 of an undiagnosed congenital heart failure.
