We're Grillin' this weekend

Hi Everybody.

The recent Walk & Wag fundaiser for the Humane Society of Huron Valley was a smash success! The total amount raised was $156,9000 — an all-time record — and the turnout was nothing short of astounding. Thanks to everybody for showing up and participating — and we had beautiful weather to boot, a rarity last month.

Next up will be Grillin’ — one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Food Gatherers, Washtenaw County’s food bank. Join me as I will once again emcee the musical performances at this fun event, which takes place at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds from 3-8pm on Sunday, June 12. Fabulous food & drink, cool silent auction items and terrific music — all for an important cause. Tickets and details at

Look for new music by John Martyn (his final studio album), Tally Hall and Joe Jackson on my next couple of Fine Tuning programs, heard Sundays at 4pm on Ann Arbor’s 107one.
