Host Lena Dorey, the cast of The Red Jacket Jamboree, Bluesman John Latini and Pure Michigan Radio Host Dave Lorenz bring you an evening of mystery and suspense during the recording of two spooktacular episodes that will have you on the edge of your seat! Don't be afraid! Our good-humored ghosts will have you chuckling, not screaming in this show!
John Latini has won accolades and awards for his gritty blues and rock tunes packed with humor, gut-wrenching honesty and a irony. The Detroit Bluesman has garnered numerous awards including the Metro Detroit Songwriting Grand Prize in 2004 and the Detroit Blues Challenge winner in 2008 and 2009 and recently the Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 Dallas Songwriters Song Contest. Latini's brand of humor is the perfect match for these whacky episodes: "Spooktacular" and "Revenge of the Deer," an episode on deer hunting that will have vegans cheering! Latini and the Copper Cats collaborate on this star-studded evening.
