I am sorry for the lengthy silence. This new schedule with a full time job and kids is hectic and I have been taking some time to adjust before I get my research schedule back up to speed. So I don’t really have much news to report about the wonderful world of techno and house in Detroit. Although, Detroit radio is definitely a highlight of my morning and afternoon drives to and from work. The other day, on the way home, I was listening to WJLB 97.9 and DJ Fingers is on at 5PM for the drive home. He played Inner City “Good Life”!!! I’m not sure where else in this country, and maybe even in the world where you could hear on a mainstream corporate radio station, a local DJ playing something so significant to Detroit’s musical history. It definitely was a hit in its day in the late 1980s, but those kind of tracks don’t often make it onto radio stations anymore, unless it’s a college or independent radio station.
