On Friday morning, Detroit radio veteran Jim Harper signs off on Magic 105.1/WMGC-FM's morning show for the last time. A native of Hamtramck, Harper started out on the air at WYNZ-AM in Ypsilanti in 1967, at the tender age of 13, broadcasting a show about "teen issues." His voice has been a mainstay on Motor City airwaves ever since, for most of the last 44 years.
