Jeff Guinn

Sunday, August 4, 2013 - 10:30pm

More than forty years ago Charles Manson and his mostly female commune killed nine people, among them the pregnant actress Sharon Tate. It was the culmination of a criminal career that author Jeff Guinn traces back to Manson’s childhood.  Childhood friends, cellmates, and even some members of the Manson Family have provided new information about Manson’s life. Guinn has made discoveries about the night of the Tate murders, answering unresolved questions, such as why one person on the property where the murders occurred was spared.

Darlene Love

Monday, July 29, 2013 - 7:00pm

Possibly the most prolific singer of the 1960s, Phil Spector "discovered" her but Darlene Love's career is almost unreal. She's sung background for Elvis, Frank Sinatra & The Beach Boys, to name just a few. Her singing with The Blossoms became the standard for girl groups in the 60s and she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Join host Tom Shaker as he celebrates the music of Darlene Love starting at 7pm!!


Soulphonic is a soul band playing soul music from the 1960s all the way up until today.

From Smaller Industrial Cities to Raptors

Sunday, August 4, 2013 - 9:00pm

Many of the smaller industrial cities of America are in serious decline due to the forces of de-industrialization, outsourcing, globalization and white flight. Many of these medium-sized urban areas like Detroit, Buffalo, Grand Rapids and Akron have suffered decades of neglect because most of the national attention and money has gone to the big urban centers. But can there be a future for these cities?
