Sundays at the Carpet House: Audio Profile

Near the corner of I-94 and I-75 on Detroit’s eastside, in the middle of an empty grass lot, sits a stage. In the warmer months this stage and the area around it spring to life as part of a regular outdoor music jam called John’s Carpet House. WDET’s Laura Herberg spent the summer there talking to folks and getting a sense of the place.
