Detroit Radio rant

This is the final week of WDET playing music late at night. I've literally enjoyed 12 years of hearing some of the most diverse music on this station and it's shaped some of my musical tastes. Liz Copeland, the late night music mistress is also having Clark Warner on for the last time do his retrospective of techno. It just struck me as really being sad not knowing when's the next time I'm going to be able to hear techno (a great Detroit export) on the airwaves again.

It was a sad show, you could tell. Anyone interested should archive the show so that we don't forget our past. You can download it and get more info here: http://www.detroitinstitute.org/techno/One-last-FOCUS-Electronic-12-years-farewell-to-Alternative-Take/

Thanks for the link there, tomoltk.

The Detroit radio landscape's sadder and a lot more barren now... especially for those of us who are night owls.
