FIRST World Championships @ Cobo Hall
Apr 24 – Apr 27 all-day

Again this year the FIRST world championship events are split between two locations–Houston and Detroit.  We qualified for the world championships in St. Louis in 2016 (when they were still a single event).  We worked hard to make it back to Worlds this year, but we did not make it. But, with the event nearby in Detroit you still might want to attend to see the competition as well as to attend some of the many conference sessions and to visit the exhibits.

Here is a link to information about the Detroit World event: https://www.firstchampionship.org/detroit-home.  We attended the event last year because there are many useful conference sessions at Worlds.  (We snuck into watch a few matches, too.)  The FIRST world event is more exciting than any other high school competitive event we know about.  If you can make it there even for a day, we encourage you to go.  It’s all free for general attendance at the matches and for all conference events.

That Thing with Rich Appel

It brings back the sound of classic Top 40 radio  highlighting not just the hits, but the jingles, commercials and news that made the era including features like “The Slow Dance Make-Out Song of the Week”, “A Year in an Hour” and “The World’s Shortest Countdown.”

Midnight Special
Apr 26 @ 11:00 pm – Apr 27 @ 12:59 am

Midnight SpecialOriginal, offbeat, fun, and thought provoking WFMT’s The Midnight Special is  the world’s weekly aberration of folk music and farce, show tunes and satire, madness and escape. Hosted by Beaver Island summer resident Rich Warren, The Midnight Special often airs live performances recorded by WFMT over the past 55 years that are not available commercially, including well-known artists appearing at Chicago area clubs, concert venues, the University of Chicago Folk Festivals and the comedy revues of Chicago’s famed Second City. One of the Frequently Asked Questions is, “If it’s the Midnight Special, why isn’t it on at Midnight?” That’s a good question. It never has been.  On WVBI or WFMT.  Go figure.

Friday nights at 11:00 p.m. on WVBI.
