Bulb Records co-founder Pete Larson visits from Kenya, Mark talks art with Yen Azzaro, and we attempt an on-air swap meet… on this weekend’s edition of the Saturday Six Pack

When I first met Pete Larson, over 25 years ago now, I think he’d just moved to Ann Arbor from Mississippi. He was a skinny kid with a long, scraggly beard like a goat, and a love for dangerously loud, life-shortening music. My first memory of him is at the Club Heidelberg, standing with one […]

Foiling anti-Ypsi plots hatched in Ann Arbor, singing and talking animal dissection with Annie Palmer, and discussing the whereabouts of our most evil trees… on episode twelve of The Saturday Six Pack

This week’s episode of the Saturday Six Pack was an odd one. It started normal enough, with an in-depth discussion about the plot hatched in Ann Arbor to defund Ypsi’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, but then it kind of began a steady descent into madness, until, by the end of the show, we were pulling […]

State Representative Jeff Irwin on the “frightened patriots” of the open carry movement, forest ecologist Ben Connor Barrie on local trees he’d love to kill, and Matt Siegfried on the racism of Rosie the Riveter… on episode 9 of The Saturday Six Pack

This is Michigan State Rep Jeff Irwin, my first guest on this past weekend’s episode of The Saturday Six Pack. Our interview, which started off with a weighty conversation on corporate money, gerrymandering, and tax policy, and how, together, they’ve nearly destroyed our state, ended on a significantly lighter note when a caller by the […]

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 […]

Paul Saginaw, Stef Chura and our new Ask-A-Teen segment on this weekend’s Saturday Six Pack

This coming Saturday’s show, assuming everyone shows up, should be pretty awesome. We’ll start out by talking with Zingerman’s co-fouder Paul Saginaw, who, if I’m not mistaken, will be our first guest to have been designated a “Champion of Change” by the Obama White House. Among other things, I’m sure we’ll discuss Paul’s efforts to […]
