As<strong> Craig Fahle</strong>, host of <a href="http://wdet.org/shows/craig-fahle-show/">The Craigh Fahle </a>show on Detroit’s NPR member station WDET, puts it, “we’re handling it the same way we’ve always handled the situation here.” Thu, 01 Aug 2013 20:59:46 +0000 John Lavanga 14132 at http://wesa.fm Leaving Detroit, and Those Who Remain
