MMHP Season 4 Ep:13--Zydeco Ziggie Zeitler--Cajun/Blues/Zydeco/Irish Michigan Blends Part 2 of 2
Known to roll the Cajun off his tongue so fluently, you would think he was from Louisiana. Don 'Ziggy' Zeitler strolls around the country brandishing a multi-instrumentalist pedigree with a bluesman's heart. Zig has been a mainstay from the Saginaw area. Growing up in Hemlock, Zig caught the bug early on. Now doing just exactly what he wants to do musically, you can find him popping up on Facebook live as much as hitting the road, usually with his wife Siusan Bayne O'Rourke. Performing with the TOGO Touring Artists/Smokin' Sleddog Records label, Zig has found comfort in a roux made with his Cajun/zydeco/blues ingredients and of course some Irish music with Siusan.    Here in Part 2, Zig dives into the music, styles, and future of the White Crow, as well as more live music--tune in afterwards for a bonus show wrap-up tune as well along with Sir Fred!

MMHP Season 4 Ep:11--Bob Martin and Review Magazine--The Lifespan of Great Lakes Bay Region Music Scene and Beyond
While Review was kicked off in 1979, under three different names, Bob Martin has manned the helm since its inception. Blending Mid-Michigan's music scene (stretching all north, over to Mt. Pleasant, down to Lansing and Flint, and into the thumb), Martin has blended political content with the arts longer than any current journalist in the area. Best of all, Review is FREE and remains to this day, free. While he does branch out on the website with more stories now, it's the perspective he shares that he has not changed since he put out the first issue. Here is his backstory, his lawyer family background, his dreams and destiny. By the end of this epic podcast, he discusses where he hopes to see Review go and how he would like it preserved. This is one for the books--tune in now!

MMHP Season 4 Ep:02--Ric Allen Niedzinski: Legendary DJ/Michigan Music History Webpage Originator
We were blessed to finally land one of the greatest DJ/Michigan Music History LEGENDS to our show. After two attempts, Ric made a visit to our new MMHP digs at the Michigan Rock Legends Hall of Fame in Bay City, this past July 3, 2023. Sadly, we lost Ric to a stroke on Sept. 5, 2023. Ric shared his music passion with us, as he did many others via being a go-to DJ in the state of Michigan, as well as in Canada.  WSAM, CKLW, WKNX, and so many more had the golden microphone, as Ric was involved with radio from a passionate prospective, breaking some 30-plus hit singles over the years. Ric took to Facebook with a partner to form the Michigan Music History page on Aug. 4, 2011, which continues to some 16.9 thousand subscribers. Self-described as a 'face for radio' Ric hung with the hit-makers, broadcast with the best of the best, and over the past few years, deeply enjoyed his family and friends.    Our deepest condolences to Ric's Family. This is for Ric, you and all the listeners. Thank you for stories and wisdom, Ric. We will miss you, Friend.

Lane Valliere was in the hot seat as a guitarist/bassist in the '60s/early '70s Mid-Michigan Music scene, which included The Bossmen, ? and the Mysterians, The Frost, and Meatloaf. From stints with various bands, including performance on Timmothy Ward's infamous solo album Strange But True from 51 years ago, a freak car wash accident led Valliere down a different path. He took to WNEM TV5 as the Director in 1975 and lasted there until he retired in 2017. When he found he could find new ways of performing on his bass and guitars, Valliere got briefly back into it with Ward in the '90s, as well as on and off since including a brief reunion show with Ward in 2022 for the 50th Anniversary of Strange But True. Also he is a Michigan History book collector, as well as the keeper of the Tom Bert music photo archives (which he purchased)--Valliere also had a family member that worked with Faron Young and knew Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley--this story is amazing! He continues to write music to this day. Grab a drink and tune in for this one!
