    As a transplanted Detroiter now living in Florida, we make a trip home at least once a year. This time it was Labor Day weekend. Detroit continues to amaze and impress me. And the Tigers won! Damn!...

    While working at WGPR during the late 80's, our inside joke was that WGPR stood for We Get Payola Regularly. Also We've Got Pathetic Ratings. Fun days...

    Wish they'd spend the money on refurbishing Hart Plaza. Was down there for the Jazz Festival and the place is in bad shape IMO.

    We weren't impressed. It's nice in a creepy sort of way. Hopefully it has improved since we stayed there. Then there was the problem of their valet parkers taking my rented Charger for a joy ride for...

    Respectfully, I disagree. I thought it was pretty good! Especially for a transplanted Detroiter like me who can't get a decent Detroit style pizza (other than the few Jet's locations we have).

    I bought one at Target down here in Florida and tried it Sunday night. It was fantastic! Well, for a frozen pizza. A little expensive ($7.99) but delicious. Manufactured by a company from Cleveland?

    It flirts with the issues of the times but doesn't really come out and talk about them. You hear Coleman's name dropped as well as Gil Hill's but that's about it, a name drop. Probably to lend some...

    They might be the equivalent of the numbered mile road, but in my 55 years, I've never heard of these referred to anything other than their name. Must be a Wikipedia thing.

    It has its moments but for the most part, I thought it sucked. I was hoping to see lots more Detroit images but other than a few seconds at the beginning, there's nothing. Oh sure, the WLLZ bumper...

    I always think of how smoky it would get inside. Did everyone smoke back in the day? I also remember commercials for Knight's auto Sales right across from Olympia. Then there was the time that I was...

    This is really sad. I worked on the boat as a DJ during the summer of '84. Hated the gig but loved being part of the whole Boblo tradition. Contrary to what others might think, we could not get off...

    I'd like to see them make better use of the Amtrak rail that runs right by the airport. Why not make better use of it by adding a "train" or something similar that can run on the already existing...

    I may be wrong but didn't she have part ownership in Club Taboo back in the day?

    A fact that any good defense attorney would have brought up to strengthen his case. Yeah, all in all I found the film weak on several levels.

    WARNING: spoilers ahead.

    I agree with others assessment of the true title of the film: "The Algiers Incident" or something like that would have been more descriptive. I lost it early on at two...

    You're thinking of RJ Rice, not RJ Watkins. RJ Rice was the founder of RJ's Latest Arrival ("Shackles" was the jam). RJ Watkins is now the President of WHPR in Highland Park. Great guy.
