We’re not quite sure why, but the woman behind the most talked about coming-of-age movie in the country this summer, author and illustrator Phoebe Gloeckner, has agreed to come on the Saturday Six Pack this weekend and tell us what it’s like to see your young, semi-autobiographical self projected on the silver screen in front […]

Wagering beers with Ypsi’s new superintendent, fighting with my daughter, and talking about Blackbeard with a young radical …on episode 22 of The Saturday Six Pack

Getting to the bottom of the EMU “redface” incident, talking Detroit rock with photographer Doug Coombe, and the music of J.T. Garlfield… on this weekend’s edition of the Saturday Six Pack

For some inexplicable reason, Brian Robb, the station manager at AM 1700, has been telling people that I plan to just lock the studio doors, unplug the phones, and play with my new puppy for the duration of this Saturday’s show, oblivious to my responsibilities as a host.
