It was on Martin Luther King Day that I visited the LBJ Museum and Library on the campus of the University of Texas in Austin. Seems somewhat appropriate since it was LBJ who signed the Civil Right Act and the Voting Rights Act. Much to my surprise I found a special exhibit, curated by the Grammy Museum, on Motown. And why not? LBJ was president from 1963-69. Motown was the soundtrack of that era
It all started here:
This is some of the music that I grew up listening to besides Elvis Presley , lol.the first records I remember listening to were Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis Presley and Our Day Will Come by Ruby and The Romantics.

A couple of great songs.
What fun to come across that Motown exhibit. I certainly wouldn’t have expected to find that at the LBJ Museum and Library.
It came as a complete surprise to me. Who’d expect to find Stevie Wonder and LBJ in the same room?
