Radio host Mike Halloran hasn’t been on the air in Detroit for over 30 years. But his influence on broadcasting in Detroit can still be felt.
The former host of 101.9 WDET’s “Radios in Motion” helped bring the city’s dynamic, emerging New Wave music scene to radio listeners.
Now, for one day only, Mike is returning to the WDET airwaves with Ann Delisi to celebrate Detroit’s punk rock musical legacy with very special “Radios in Motion” reboot.
Join Mike and Ann from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM on March 21st when they go back in time to celebrate the underground rock, punk, and new wave genres that Mike helped launch to popularity in Detroit.
Revisit Ann Delisi’s Essential Conversation with Mike Halloran
“Detroit has birthed a lot of music scenes,” Halloran says of deciding what to play on ‘Radios in Motion.’ The city had attracted a number of musicians, from blues to country to bluegrass. ”They all got to Detroit, and this amalgamation of weirdness happened. Detroit became a hotbed of experimentation, it was just electric and it was on fire.”
