Radio Free Detroit!

Willy Wilson's The Motor City is Burning on CJAM 99.1 FM airs each Wednesday night from 6:30-8 p.m. Wilson's a music head to be sure and he's been a fan of the Detroit sound since he was a sprout. He spins great shit, like a Rodney Peel mashup or somethin'. For proof, see the show's playlists below from the last three weeks, beginning with last night's. (Note that Wilson's radio shows are available for download here. Click on Wednesday and then click on The Motor City Is Burning.)
