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.”
