Alternate Take: Hear ACDC cover from Detroit dance band Slingshot; music from Arthur Russell and more

Listen to “Alternate Take” with host Liz Warner every Thursday from 8-10 p.m. ET on Detroit Public Radio 101.9 WDET.

On the latest episode of Alternate Take, I share music from Slingshot, a band that performed live on the iconic local TV show The Scene and in Detroit clubs in the early ‘80s.
