State Rep Jeff Irwin, talking trees with Ben Connor Barrie, and the Ypsilanti History Minute with Matt Siegfried… on this weekend’s Saturday Six Pack


This coming Saturday’s show, as always, will be awesome. We’ll start out by talking with Michigan State Rep Jeff Irwin about raising the sales tax to fix our roads, his apparent disdain for daylight saving time, and anything else you might want to call in about. And then we’ll chat with the likes of Matt Siegfried about local history, and Ben Connor Barrie about local trees, among other things. And, of course, Brigid Mooney will be bringing by one of her favorite regulars from the bar to say hello. And, perhaps most importantly, this will be our fist episode with a house band, thanks to the heroic efforts of Jim Cherewick… And, as always, our intrepid downtown reporter Chris Sandon will be out on the street, looking for action throughout the show, and chasing down any breaking news leads you might call in with.

If you’d like to tell your friends about the show, feel free to share the Facebook event page. As of right now, it looks as though there are only about 30 people who are planning to listen, so there should still be some milliwatts available. (Unless you live really close by, I’d recommend streaming the show online, which you can do either on the AM1700 website or by way of

And for those of you who aren’t yet familiar with the show, you can listen to the entire archive on iTunes.

One last thing. We love phonecalls. So please burn this number into your well-toned torso with a cigarette… 734.217.8624… and call us between 6:00 and 8:00 this Saturday evening. (Don’t make us call you.)

Oh, and if you don’t live close enough to the studio to pick us up on the radio, and you don’t have access to a computer, I’m told that, again this week, the folks at 826michigan will be hosting a listening party at their downtown Ann Arbor Robot Supply Store. So, if you can’t hear it any other way, or just don’t want your neighbors in Ann Arbor to know that you’re listening to The Saturday Six Pack, head over to Liberty Street and knock on the door.

[And, thank you Kate de Fuccio for finally transferring my head to the body of a stylish coke fiend.]

    It’s just been reported that Chris Sandon will be traveling from bar to bar this Saturday night, asking local bartenders if they know the difference between a dirty mooney and a classy mooney.

    A headache woke me up last night and (of course) I got online I read this page and then dreamed of Jeff Irwin! Nothing kinky or nasty…he just was sort of there, hanging out. (The dream was of being at a Target with a bunch of classes of kids who are SXI–severely multiply impaired–and we had to help them do daily living type activities. But dreams are weird, so I would help one class, and then they’d come right back to do the same thing. Over and over. And Rep. Irwin was just kind of hanging out there THANKS TO YOU ;))

    “Rep Irwin, why are things so fucked, and how do we fix them?”

    I can’t call in tonight so I would appreciate it if you’d ask Jeff Irwin on the state of sentencing reform in Michigan. Specifically 1) reform of drug sentencing guidelines, and 2) parole reform in Michigan for felons who have served the minimum of their sentences.
