City Slang: Motown Museum extends summer hours

The world-famous Motown museum has extended its summer hours in order to accommodate more visitors. The Museum’s new hours, in effect until Labor Day, are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 8 p.m.

“We want as many Motown fans to visit our Museum as possible,” says Motown Museum interim CEO Allen Rawls, “So, for Detroiters and tourists alike, we’re happy to announce our extended summer hours by now also being open on Mondays as well as later on Saturday evenings. Our hope is that everyone who wants to visit us and enjoy a piece of Detroit’s music history is able to do just that.”

The Motown Museum is currently showing, along with its regular collection, a temporary Marvin Gaye exhibition.

Along similar lines, City Slang recently heard that the legendary Aretha Franklin wrote a letter to TV execs trying to get the gig as a judge on American Idol. We would like to plea to Aretha, don’t do it. That vile excuse for entertainment is so far below you, it’s barely a dot to you. It is mindless, mean, karaoke television for people who don’t know better. Thanks.
