The 18th Annual Homelessness Marathon on 89.7
On February 17th from 7 p.m. to midnight, LCC Radio will join together with other radio stations across the nation to help bring the voices of homeless people into America's homes. The Annual Homelessness Marathon, which has previously originated from Detroit, Kansas City, and Katrina-ravaged Mississippi, among other places, features live in-depth discussions with homeless people. The broadcast also takes calls, so people living in their homes can talk with people living on the streets. This year's broadcast will originate from Washington D.C. To find out more about the Homelessness Marathon, visit their website.
LCC Radio 89.7 Calendar of Concerts & Events
Pickin' in the Park
years ago, a national music education/preservation group approached WLNZ
about helping them promote and coordinate a weekly event that brings
together musicians of all ages and different skill levels to create
music and learn from each other at the same time; the event was called
Pckin' in the Park. 89.7 was happy to help out with the initial on-air
promotions, hosting, and coordinating during the early days. Since that
time, Pickin' in the Park has taken on a life of its own -- which was
exactly what it was supposed to do!
Pickin' in the Park still takes place in Old Town every Tuesday from 6-9 pm. During the summer months, you can follow the music to any one of Old Town's three parks (generally Burchard Park). During the colder months, the gang usually migrates to Sir Pizza Grand Café located at 201 E. Grand River Ave.
Instruments of all types are welcome. Each session is a spontaneous and fun experience covering all sorts of music from bluegrass, blues, classic rock, contemporary, country, to folk. Whether you're just getting started or a seasoned musician, make it a point to be a part of this great experience in Lansing.
