Motorcity Rebound

I'm working on a new public radio show called, State of the Re:Union. The idea is to show listeners how we are more alike than we are different and the many ways our differences are celebrated. Multi-facted artist Al Letson employs his talents to discover how a particular city, town or area creates a community. From Washington, DC to Jena, Louisiana, SOTRU will travel our great country one significant spot at a time to capture the stories, the challenges, and the culture that not only make it unique, but work together like chords to compose our rich commonwealth.

Transcending a glorified travel guide, State of the Re:Union finds the resonating fragments that create the cornerstone of every community. Hear from the artists, activists, politicians, teachers, preachers and every day people that are making a difference arranged with the music, sounds and styles born of the area in focus.

We just finished work on the Detroit episode, and now you can listen below. We'd love your feedback!
