Two of Flint’s music legends come together for a scintillating look at the culture and streets that led to the music movements of the 80’s and 90’s that helped transform American music.
Strozier led the way with his band Ready For The World, and a scoring a Grammy nomination. Dorsey was a little less mainstream, but no less influential with his rap crew The Dayton Family, garnering hip hop accolades and a devoted national following. The powerhouse duo chat about old school, new school, and what needs to happen to revitalize the Flintstone landscape.
Later in the show, Fish and Gordon are joined by Jay Clothier. Jay is one of the most dynamic business owners and attorneys in Flint and a long time supporter of the community. His dad, John Clothier, was a legendary community school superstar, and CANUSA and Olympian Games giant. Jay has been a regular and very publicly passionate commentator on events in and around Flint. Sometimes that has put him directly in the crosshairs of controversy, a position he’s unafraid to confront. Through it all he’s known as a savvy and talented barrister with a big heart.
Fish, Gordon, and Jay break down what’s happening in the Vehicle City, how it’s changed, and what it was like back in the day. It’s a great day in The Aquarium!
