Happy Birthday Brian Holland (Holland-Dozier-Holland)

Brian Holland of Holland, Dozier and Holland Fame turns 77 today.  The trio wrote a treasure trove of Motown hits for The Four Tops, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, The Marvelettes, The Isley Brothers, Martha and The Vandellas and many, many more.  I chatted with Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland 20 years ago this month.  It’s one of my all-time favorites.  Enjoy!

Meet “Under The Radar Michigan” Creators Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman

Simply hit the ‘Start Button’ below the photo.

On Tuesday, February 13th, I sat down with Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman the creators of “Under the Radio Michigan.”   We all worked together back in the 80’s at WRIF 101 FM.  We had an incredible time back in the good ol’ days.  We were just making great radio and having a ball!  We spend about 10 minutes reminiscing about The Home of Rock & Roll, and boy did we have some laughs.  We then move into our discussion about Under the Radar Michigan

Funny how things turn out.  Especially for Tom and Jim.  In 2012 they had a meeting at WTVS Detroit Public TV and…well I’ll let them tell you the rest of a truly great story.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did doing the podcast.  Enjoy

Keith Jackson Gone at Age 89

“Whoa Nelly who wants it…who’s number one?…Hello everybody I’m Keith Jackson along with Bob Griese and welcome to the “Big House” in a cold, damp and sleeting Ann Arbor Michigan.”

So sad to hear about the passing of Keith Jackson today.  I don’t believe there will ever be another like him.  I had the rare chance to chat with Keith Jackson in 1997. Please, have a listen.  RIP Keith Jackson.

Happy Birthday Pat Benatar! Shh… She’s 65

Pat Benatar is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Her friendly, humble and endearing personality is only outdone by her incredible voice.  Check out this interview we did twenty years ago. Enjoy!
