As Howard ended Chris’ call, Gary came into the studio and announced that Smokey Robinson stopped by the studio and wanted to say hello. Smokey then came into the studio and mentioned he had a new album, “Timeless Love,” which he described as a collection of standards. Smokey went on to acknowledge he had his “share” of women before he got married, adding he and his current wife have been married four years.

Smokey also reported he was able to make a great deal of money from his album sales because of the contract he signed with Motown at the start of his career. Smokey added that several of the songs he wrote, including “Get Ready,” “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “My Guy” and “My Girl,” were all big money earners for him.
