It's a strange phenomenon. We are one of the Northern most states and yet we run into native Michiganders that have, what sounds like, a Southern accent. Then there are those that don't but still mispronounce a lot of words. Now, I'm not perfect and just like you I can use a little learnin' more often than not.
It's that time of year! Summer is finally here and so is the Rocker Classic Car. This year's addition is a Black Cherry Pearl 1974 Corvette restored to all it's glory by Butler Body Shop in Coldwater with bad-ass tires & rims from Boland Tire.
With the U.S. Open under way in Wisconsin I thought it was a good time to let the people decide who's got the better golf swing; me or LPGA Pro Ally MacDonald. Ally was on the show with us along with our friends from Firekeepers Casino Hotel promoting the upcoming Firekeepers Casino Hotel Championship next month.
There's so much to do during Summer in Michigan that I've decided to put together an official 2017 Bucket List so I make sure I do the "Musts" this year. Now I've got 10 but I'm thinking I need, at least, 10 more. So, check out my list and let me know what NOT to miss or throw in some of your favorites that I might not even know about.
Saturday was the annual West Michigan Mustang Club and all ford show & Shine at Seelye Ford. As expected, nearly every year of The Mustang was represented. In fact, it was the largest gathering in the event's history and "Stang" lovers flocked to see these great rides.
The annual Seelye Ford Mustang Club show is Saturday from 10a-3p where I'll, once again this year, be broadcasting live from 11a-1p. Over the years I've grown to appreciate the "Pony" car as never before.
I was lucky enough to see the first Joshua Tree Tour back in 1987 when they came to Cleveland and it's still one of the best concerts my wife Karla and I have ever seen. What a great album and one that you can hear on this 30th anniversary tour. We just found out that U2 will be extending their tour and will play Ford Field on September 3rd.
The last time Styx was in Kalamazoo was December of 2014 so it's about time they rocked the roof off again. We just found out Styx is coming back to the State Theater downtown Kalamazoo on Wednesday November 15th. Now I know that's a ways away but tickets go on sale tomorrow June 7th at 10:00am.
First Bob Seger announces a new tour. The first chance to see him in Michigan is at DTE September 9th but it sells out before tickets go on sale and fans are bummed. Then he announces he'll play The Palace one last time on September 23rd with tickets going on sale June 9th. I guess we'll see how that goes. Next we hear this may be his last tour and Seger fans are starting to scramble. If it's true, we have one last chance to see him in West Michigan.
Our friends from Kalamazoo Public Safety Deputy Chief Karianne Thomas and Officer John Resseguie stopped by to let us know that the "Thin Blue Line" is getting thinner and they're looking for the best and brightest to fill the ranks. And check this out...there is a sponsorship program that pays your salary while you train at the academy. If you are a smart person of good character and have a sincere desire to better the community, this might be the carreer for you. As Karianne and John explained, there is so much more about being a police officer than fighting crime and issuing tickets.
