The Saturday Six Pack With Mark Maynard, Episode 32

From an old converted barbershop inside the area’s largest all-nude strip club comes the thirty-second 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, Mark leads a discussion on affordable housing in Ann Arbor with Brett Lenart, Interim Executive Director of the Washtenaw Office of Community and Economic Development, Mary Jo Callan, former Executive Director of the Washtenaw Office of Community & Economic Development and current Director of the Ginsberg Center for Community Service Learning at the University Of Michigan, Michael Appel, Senior Developer at Avalon Housing, and Chuck Warpehoski, Director of the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice and Ann Arbor City Council member The group discusses the status of development for the Platt Road site as well as what steps need to take place in order to keep socio-economic diversity in Ann Arbor balanced.

Next Mark is joined in the studio by Ypsilanti Community Schools art teacher Lynne Settles, artist Douglas Jones, and local historian Matt Siegfried. They discuss the completion of a mural honoring H.P. Jacobs that Settles led as part of class project.

Finally, reporter Tom Perkins stops by to answer Mark’s hard-hitting questions, but is interrupted when local ‘zine producer Colin Morehouse bursts into the station and takes off all his clothes to promote the latest issue of his ‘zine. The show grinds to a halt as Mark spends the next thirty minutes blushing and stammering [Ed. Note: the carpet DOES NOT match the drapes].

The show ends with everyone scrubbing every single surface in the studio with bleach.
