WJR's Smith set to see Michigan

Listeners to WJR's Paul W. Smith Show (5:30 - 9 a.m., weekdays) the week of May 4th, will get to hear why Michigan is a very special travel destination, not only from those outside the area but Michiganders as well. It's all part of a special week of broadcasts as Travel Michigan presents the 2009 Paul W. Smith Pure Michigan Tour.

The week of special on-location-remotes begins at the Villages of Tullymore in Stanwood (May 4th). Other tour stops include the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa (5/5), the Inn at Bay Harbor (5/6), Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island (5/7) and concludes at the Monroe County Community College's La-Z-Boy Center Meyer Theatre in Paul W's childhood hometown of Monroe, MI (5/8).

Smith is scheduled to talk with local business and government leaders at each of the stops on the tour.

In addition to the broadcasts, highlights of the tour including photographs and exclusive interviews will be online at



Detroit News:

Ulysses Wolf is the owner of the booming voice often used to pump up Joe Louis Arena during Red Wings games, and tonight, he will be faceless no more. Normally unseen, Wolf will be at center ice before the opener of the Western Conference playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks. This isn't his first dalliance with the Red Wings organization, though. When the Wings won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1997 and 1998, he was the voice of Joe Vision. When the Wings were on the road, fans filled Joe Louis and often heard Wynn's voice. "They want it to be powerful and masterful, and I love putting that into a performance," he said... Finally, Red Wings announcer will be seen (Fri, 5/1)
