Hosted by Travis Wright, WDET’s Culture City exposes Detroit’s prolific output of arts, culture and entertainment happenings.

You’ll hear performances from local and national talent, interviews with creative characters working in low and high brow visual art, theatre, film and literature, as well as conversations about comedy, culinary arts, and sports.
