Carl Coffey

Paper or plastic? Other than bagging groceries at the A&P in town or milking cows on Daddy and Mother’s dairy farm, I’ve only ever worked “on-air” in radio. After high school, I read the obituary report on the Lapeer radio station (yep, same frequency) and was a Mortarman in the 4rth Infantry Division in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Bringing free-form radio back to Detroit in creating and hosting "The Rif Rock Café” and being “Your Afternoon Coffey Break” were high-points of my radio career in the Motor City. I’m glad for the opportunity to entertain and inform listeners every morning on US 103.1, to promote the neighborhood and to be part of the community I grew up in.

Spring might start today but not before police announced yesterday that dozens of citations, mostly for driving too fast, will be issued in a 193 vehicle crash last January on I-94. One driver was killed and the freeway was closed for two days. We're required here in Michigan to drive at a “careful and prudent speed” based on road conditions. Most were ticketed for violating that law.

Michigan DNR Looking For Volunteers Statewide in Frog & Toad Survey

A sure sign of spring that's music to my soul is hearing a chorus of spring peepers in the swamp. The number of frogs, toads and other amphibians has been declining worldwide since the 1980s. In the past twenty years or so, Michigan has seen a decline in Fowler’s toads and mink frogs. If you’d like to listen for calling frogs and toads and volunteer you can get more information on the 20th Annual Frog and Toad Survey

Thirty nine miles from the family farm in Ireland is Newgrange, one of many very large stone monuments scattered across the island.

Bruce Springsteen Has an Irish Passport

Over the weekend I found out Bruce Springsteen’s great, great grandmother and my grandfather both spent time in the town of Mullingar and were born 20 miles from each other. According to an article in the Westmeath Examiner, Bruce was presented with his Irish passport and his great, great grandmother’s birth certificate a couple of years ago in Ireland. Ann Garrity lived in Mullingar before leaving for America where she settled in New Jersey on Leopold Street: the same street Bruce was born 70 years later.
