Should be?


It's about 4:00 P.M. right now, approaxitmly one hour until I take a final on Zen Buddhism, my final final as an undergraduate. This Sunday, two days after officially graduating from college, marks the beggining of a new chapter for me and for Detroit Public Radio.
................................................................................
WDET 101.9FM Detroit Public Radio will introduce listeners to two new local arts programs on Sunday, May 7, 2006 with the premier broadcasts of Front Row Center (11am – noon) and Live From Studio A (noon – 1pm). Both programs are elements in WDET's commitment to showcase metropolitan Detroit's rich and diverse cultural life.

Front Row Center is hosted and produced by WDET's award-winning arts and culture reporter Celeste Headlee. The show will focus on all aspects of cultural affairs and include interviews, conversations, performances, feature reports and more. Listeners can expect to hear about cultural events from the mainstream to the obscure, as well as important issues that impact the cultural life of our community. The first program on May 7 will feature the baseball exhibit at the Henry Ford, an interview with Dick Clark of the Society of American Baseball Research about the Negro Leagues, and a conversation with art collector Dr. Walter Evans about the African American Art Exhibit currently at the DIA. Front Row Center airs Sunday mornings from 11am to noon.

Live From Studio A is hosted and produced by WDET music host Jon Moshier and continues the long tradition of live music performances at Detroit Public Radio. WDET's live music studio, Studio A, is one of the largest live music studios at any radio station in the Midwest. WDET prides itself on its national reputation for outstanding live music production and Live From Studio A will utilize the station's many resources. Listeners can expect to hear a variety of national, international and local artists who perform in Studio A. The first program on May 7 will feature performances by acclaimed singer-songwriter Beth Orton and Ann Arbor based local favorite Nomo. Live From Studio A airs Sunday afternoons from noon to 1pm.

"Programs like these are part of our commitment to serve the community with a premier public radio service," said Allen Mazurek, WDET Program Director. "Introducing listeners to artists and events and celebrating the cultural life of Detroit are an important part of what we do at Detroit Public Radio."
