A special THANK YOU to Henry Krueger for donating his entire production Capsule Countdown audio files and music “countdown” charts — now archived on Motor City Radio Flashbacks.
Henry’s radio broadcast career encompassed throughout western and eastern Michigan. He was heard on WPLB in Greenville; WBCH in Hastings; WHLS, WPHM in Port Huron; WKLT in Traverse City. In the 1990s, he did 3-minute “newscasts” for the ‘Top 12 At 12’ on WHND, Detroit.
