Washtenaw County is planning to regulate the use of single use, plastic bags.  However, the Michigan State Legislature has slowed the process of passing this measure.  In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's Patrick Campion speaks with Washtenaw County Commissioner Yousef Rabhi about the controversy surrounding the proposed ordinance.

  Editor's note: Wednesday evening, the Washtenaw County commissioners  voted 6-2 to approve a new carryout bag ordinance that would put a 10-cent "tax" on customers for every single use (paper or plastic) bag they receive at stores in Washtenaw county. Stay tuned for follow-up discussion on the issue.

  What happens when you take a radio junkie and technophile and plop him down in the middle of one of the great public radio stations in the United States?  Well...  You've been hearing and seeing parts of it for just a little more than two years.  Patrick Campion loves the idea of what radio once was, what it still can be, and what it must become into the future.  WEMU is the very embodiment of all those great concepts, and your continued support lets WEMU thrive and flourish in unprecendented ways.

Marc Taras surrounds himself with records for a living.  In his "day job" he's the proprietor of a local record shop.  Saturday evenings he spins tunes for all of us during Cuban Fantasy. He's a prime example of how WEMU's hosts turn their passion for music and community service into great radio.

  Joe Tiboni has spent most of his life as a devotee to the blues.  You get to experience that experience and passion every Sunday evening when he steps in to host Big City Blues Cruise.  That's what you support when you give to WEMU - passion.  Shows like these are slowly disappearing from the radio landscape, but, at WEMU, they're an important part of our schedule because that's what our community has told us is important.
