If it's the fourth Tuesday of the month, WHFR proudly spotlights another hard-working, socially-positive, local non-profit organization. Today's show: James Tatum, jazz pianist, founded the James Tatum Foundation after retiring. Since its beginning in 1987, it has raised over $300,000 and provided scholarships to over 600 students. Remember, the Tuesday Forum is archived as a podcast on this website, available anytime after broadcast: click on Talk Shows--Tuesday Forum--(select date).
These guys got something special going on. Throwback to some early Black Sabbath and you'll get the idea. Rootsy. Bluesy. Real Detroit-y (I said it). Get with this if you like straight ahead rock without the glam. Hold the pretensions. Get down with Bison Machine.
Pat Frisco returns to Spirits Rejoice tonight refreshed and recharged. Pat's musical journey is as deep and profound as it is challenging to describe. Avant garde jazz is as close as we come. Sonically challenging while spiritually liberating is no overstatement. Tune in tonight from 6 until 10 and see if you don't tune BACK in each and every Tuesday night.
Here are the most recent two episodes of the half-hour radio/podcast show from the Sierra Club, the largest pro-environment non-profit organization in the world, including a very active chapter in Michigan.

Moog-A-Thon 2014 happens this year here at WHFR on Tom Wilson's "Space Is The Place." Join us from 6 PM to Midnight for an incredible birthday tribute to Dr. Moog. Tom will be joined by Don Preston, of the Mothers of Invention, and Herbert Deutsch, a collaborator of the late Dr. Moog's, who will be calling in during the night to share their remembrances of this great inventor.

Some claim that the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 was actually caused by a controlled demolition orchestrated by the U.S. government. Dramatic conspiracy theories of this kind are all over the place, but they are often dismissed as crazy. Sometimes, however, they turn out to be true: the NSA, as we have learned, conducted secret surveillance of millions of people for more than ten years. Does this show that we shouldn’t be so dismissive of conspiracy theories after all, or that we simply refuse to accept the existence of coincidence?
In honor of Spring (finally) in Michigan, we interview John Lindenmayer, Advocacy & Policy Director (& Webmaster) for the League of Michigan Bicyclists, a non-profit organization devoted to the advancement of bicycling--for recreation and for commuting--and increasing the safety of bicyclists on the roadways in Michigan. Lots of events, legislation, and future initiatives to help support inexpensive transportation and a more healthy lifestyle!
