Fine Tuning preview: 8/31/14

This Sunday at 4 pm on my 107one Fine Tuning program I'll play a recent interview I did with Patrick Carney, the drummer of the Black Keys.  The Keys have two upcoming concerts in Michigan to support their new album 'Tune Blue,' including a date at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids on Sept. 7 and one at Joe Louis Arena on Sept. 12.  We'll also have some songs from legendary British vocalist Kate Bush, who made her return to the stage last week in London after an absence of 35 years!

Jack White & Martin Bandyke 072814
I’ve got something very special planned for this Sunday’s edition of Fine Tuning on ann arbor’s 107one — an interview with Jack White! Many of you know by now that Jack and I are first cousins — Teresa Gillis (his mother) and Ted Bandyke (my father) were sister and brother. While I see Jack in concert and at family events in Detroit, I haven’t had him on the radio with me in many, many years. Don’t miss my very personal interview with Jack White this Sunday at 4 pm on 107one.
