Stateside for Monday, December 7, 2015

stateside_logo2.jpg

  • In Detroit and across Michigan, there is often talk about becoming the next Silicon Valley. But Detroit has its own set of unique challenges and opportunity, and Razi Jafri is here to tell us we should strive to be something new and different.
     
  • Michigan Radio sports commentator John U. Bacon joins us to talk about the Spartans' ninth Big Ten Championship and the upcoming bowl games in this week's sports roundup.
     
  • Campaign songs aren't a new phenomenon. There's just something about pop tunes that politicians can't resist, and U of M musicologist Mark Clague tells us that's been true in America pretty much since the beginning.
     
  • Whether between mothers and daughters, brothers and sisters, or lovers new and old, human relationships are rarely tidy and neat. This is especially true in Bonnie Jo Campbell's book Mothers, Tell Your Daughters.
