WDET Dumps Folk Music
October 19, 2004
A month ago, WDET in Detroit told folk DJ Matt Watroba that his services were no longer necessary (this in an area home to a giant pile of folk music fans). The station did this in attempt to present a more cohesive music schedule that would prompt listeners to stay tuned longer. While this defense is fair (and a pretty standard argument in public radio), it does leave many folk listeners looking for a new source of music. Are you a Folk Alley fan living in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area? Please, take this opportunity to tell your friends about us. We may not be there physically, but we are in spirit. And I wouldn't mind making a few more trips up to The Ark, it's a great club!
