A Motown fanatic from Detroit has discovered Marvin Gaye’s 1964 passport hidden in an album he bought for 50 cents from a house clearance. The incredible find is detailed in the latest episode of Antiques Roadshow (the U.S. version), with the collector explaining how he came across the passport:
“It came to me by pure accident. For years, I worked for the Motown Museum here in Detroit, started when I was 18 years old. I was a Motown collector – anything Motown, I loved. And after a Motown musician had passed, we had gone to their house to pick up some items that the family wanted to donate to the museum, and they had said, ‘Is there anything else you wanted? Because otherwise, it’s going to be in the estate sale this weekend.’ More at Factmag

This dog footage of Faith is from YouTube and is amazing. I think he wears a harness in the street but when in the park he gets to run free. Thought I'd would share it with you today. Have a nice Sunday. As a bonus ant the foot of this page I have put the new Unsung US TV show about the Manhattans, n-joy.
