DO YOU remember seeing Stevie, Smokey and Martha in Glasgow in 1965?

Can you recall being at the Odeon Cinema in 1965, watching Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Smokey Robinson and a 15-year-old Stevie Wonder perform?

If you can, and you’re willing to share your memories of that night before the stars became household names, you could be part of a special VIP experience.

And Evening Times readers are being offered the chance to win a VIP Motown experience in Glasgow including tickets for the show’s press night on Wednesday 30 October, meal and overnight hotel stay.
