The Saturday Six Pack With Mark Maynard, Episode 20

From an old converted barbershop inside the area’s largest all-nude strip club comes the twentieth episode of the Saturday Six Pack With Mark Maynard.

Moving from print media, Mark Maynard brings his interview style to the world of AM radio. In the first hour, Keta Cowan from Synod Community Services drops in to talk about the success of the Washtenaw ID program. Later in the hour, Michael Jackman, managing editor of the Detroit Metro Times, discusses fictitious zine publishers with Mark before doing his best Alan Almond impression and inviting everyone to come visit his favorite Hamtramck watering hole, The Painted Lady. Next, The People’s History of Ypsilanti segment focuses on the 1850s. Finally, Jim Roll, owner of Backseat Productions, joins Mark and tells him what life was like growing up as an all-conference quarterback in suburban Chicago and why he gave it all up in order to take up cycling. Jim treats everyone to “You”, his stunning collaboration he did with Denis Johnson. The show ends with Mark and Jim talking about what they are going to do for Father’s Day and Mark narrowly avoiding getting his ass kicked for insulting some of the workers from next door.
