A SPECIAL THANK YOU

It has been nearly two years (January 2016) when our friend, Detroit radio historian, Greg Innis, suggested Motor City Radio Flashbacks should “discover” the Detroit Free Press Newspaper Archives@Newspapers.com.

Your suggestion has been well appreciated. Thank you!

What a Detroit radio, “treasure trove,” this website having uncovered pouring through the Detroit Free Press newspaper archives. What you read here has not been read nor seen since the very day these articles were first published. We have literally hundreds upon hundreds of newspaper features on Detroit radio (and some related Detroit music) saved in our archives to date, set aside for future posts.

And we keep finding many, many more. So look for more ‘Detroit Radio Back Pages’ on Motor City Radio Flashbacks. It is a refreshing, altogether different look back at Detroit radio history. As was first read in newspaper print for the very first time decades ago.

 

Thank you, Greg Innis!
