Podcast Devoted To Some Detroit Radio History


Active Rock station WRIF-FM, launched in 1971, has been on the air in Detroit for over 48 years — so why not have a podcast retracing that history? The History of WRIF Podcast, hosted by former WRIF DJ Mike Staff and produced by current WRIF Host Steve Black, will feature discussions with past and present personalities reflecting on their memories from their time on the air.

The first episode will feature Motor City radio legend Arthur Penhallow. “Arthur P” was present for the launch of 101 WRIF in 1971 and spent several decades on the air at WRIF.

“With WRIF’s long history of rockin’ Detroit and the countless memories that go along with that, I am thrilled we were able to provide a platform to share these stories with our listeners,” said WRIF Program Director Mark Pennington.

The first episode is available for download HERE. Future episodes with other past and present WRIF personalities will be released on a monthly basis.
