Northern Arts & Culture: singer/songwriter Michael Waite

Michael Waite

Local singer/songwriter Michael Waite is releasing his second CD - We've Always Been at Home - this fall, and he stopped by the Public Radio 90 studios to talk to Hans Ahlstrom about the songs, how they came about, the other musicians who took part in the project, and to play a couple of songs.

He released the first single - Song of the River Thrush - in July and will follow with Bird Feeder Blues on August 24nd and I Built A Fire on September 22nd before the full CD release on October 6th.

Hans Ahlström is the host of several programs including the daily musical variety show Weekday, the mostly straight ahead jazz show Night Studio, the self explanatory Blues Today, and the eclectic Sound Spectrum. You can also hear Hans as the local host of NPR's All Things Considered news magazine. He also helps manage Public Radio 90's web content, interviews local and visiting writers and artists, works with NMU student interns, and writes the occasional news story.
