One last FOCUS: Electronic, a 12 years farewell to an Alternative Take

Posted by tomo 4221 days ago techno| detroit radio streaming interview All
http://www.detroittechnomilitia.com — Due to a change in management and a subsequent change in format for Detroit public radio station WDET, Liz Copeland's Alternative Take show will be ending this week and tonight will be the final FOCUS. The topic for tonight will be "the Best of Detroit Techno". The show starts at midnight tonight in the Eastern time zone and you can tune in online at http://www.wdetfm.org/ or 101.9 FM if you're in the Detroit area.

This is the same show that brought us the interview with Mad Mike of UR.

Update: You can now listen to last night's show from WDETfm.org if you missed it live. The Focus segment starts one hour in and lasts about three hours. I personally liked the last hour and a half the best. Many thanks to the Detroit Techno Militia for the heads up.
