This week on The Detroit Move, hear Made in Michigan music, including 1960s garage punk from Holland’s The Legends, a rockabilly classic from Eastpointe’s Johnny Powers, and Detroit soul legend Little Willie John.

I also pay tribute to the late Dexter Romweber of Flat Duo Jets, who died last month at the age of 57.
