Detroit, you must speak now!

We, the Public, are deeply disappointed in Wayne State University’s decision to stop the broadcast of all community programming and local daytime music on WDET, 101.9 FM, Detroit Public Radio. We should have a say in what is aired on WDET, OUR public radio station in Detroit. We have supported, promoted, and cultivated WDET for 35 years. Music is art, and it is also an integral part of Detroit’s rich and noteworthy history. Therefore, it should remain a large part of WDET, OUR public radio station. WDET is a part of the fabric of this city, and was one of the last mediums to expose listeners to a wide variety of diverse music from local to global artists, to independent and underexposed films and festivals, the marketplace to Detroit’s cultural festivals and events, local dining venues and much more.

Good News

Wayne State University’s Board of Governors has honored our request to be added to their agenda. The meeting will convene at 2:00 p.m. on January 25, in the McGregor Conference Center Room BC, on the Wayne State Campus.
