Listen to our interview earlier this week with drummer and singer Leonard King. King visited the WEMU studio to discuss his major project: The Lyman Woodard Organization For the Arts. In the 1970s Leonard joined the group led by Detroit organist Lyman Woodard and became a major player in Detroit jazz, soul, blues and dance music. Leonard reminisced warmly about Lyman Woodard's important and inspirational position in Detroit musical history as well as his own.
In this week's installment of "Cinema Chat", WEMU's David Fair finds out more about the rapidly approaching "Cinetopia Film Festival" and talks with Julie Stotler of The Kite Network. the Kite Network is sponsoring tonight's Michigan Theater showing of the documentary, "Transforming Loss", but only after recognizing Russ Collins birthday!
