We are delighted to be sonically visiting and celebrating the city that brought so much to our music landscape here at Worldwide FM as we spend the week celebrating the city of Detroit.
As a city, Detroit has been responsible for key contributors across the whole spectrum of music from Jazz to Hip Hop to Techno and further beyond.
