Motor City Juke Joint

Live! Weekdays at 4pm!

Love Music?  Head over to the Juke Joint on New Radio Media!

Join Detroiter and musician, Ben Rose, for a look at what’s hot in Detroit’s creative scene. Each LIVE episode showcases the wealth of talent in the Metro Detroit area – musicians, artists and other creative personalities you might miss if you don’t watch this show.

Live music is just part of the fun. Ben creates a comfortable, conversational atmosphere – it’s like sitting around a table with him and talking to friends.

Ben’s strong focus on supporting the local creative community makes Motor City Juke Joint the perfect platform for introducing artists to a new audience – and introducing his audience to new artists.

A note from Ben: “Detroit is a hotbed for talent, and I want to expose the world to all that it has to offer. I will listen to anything once. If you’re in a band or a solo artist, send me your music. Whether it’s a link or a physical copy, just send it. I’ll listen to it and might even play it on air. You could even end up being a guest on Motor City Juke Joint. Don’t worry about asking if I’m looking for any particular style of music. I’m interested in all genres of music. Sure I listen to a lot of Americana, Rockabilly, Punk, Garage, Surf, Soul, Jazz, Bluegrass, etc., but I’ll give anything a chance. Send me an email and we’ll go from there.”
