Raffle tickets for the chance to win this year's Stone Soup Project car will be for sale from 6:00pm until 7:45pm in the Greater Media Detroit parking lot (visit for directions, gates open at 5:30pm) prior to the drawing at 8:00pm with 'CSX morning hosts JJ & Lynne along with William Jones, board chair of Focus: HOPE & COO of Chrysler Financial.

Ken Daniels has a black Portuguese water dog with a perfect name. We talked about a slew of things the other day, including how the only game he's missed in his Detroit Red Wings broadcasting career was the first one.

First, though, he had to spend a moment wrangling the dog whose name is Puck. Daniels, raised in Toronto and now living in Farmington Hills, is one of four on-air personalities who've been around since the launch of FSN Detroit, which turned 10 on Monday... Wings' voice Ken Daniels practices a new accent (Wed, 9/19)

Detroit Free Press:

Summertime and the living is not only easy, but uneventful. That appeared to be the case with Arbitron's radio ratings for June, July and August released Tuesday. As usual, oldies station WOMC had a summer surge and several stations had their usual soft summer numbers. Oldies music is a proven summertime radio fave... Hot fun calls for WOMC-FM (Wed, 9/19)
