    I'm from Detroit but not there now.  

    Grad of Cody (and the Grande Ballroom), class of '69.

    I've now lived away from Michigan longer than I lived there.  I was born and grew up on the NW side, blocks away from the world's first K-Mart at Plymouth Rd. and the Southfield e-way.  I worked at Henry Ford Hospital for a couple summers in the late 60's and my route took me down Grand River to the Boulevard every day past that billboard and (sigh) the now disappeared Olympia Stadium. Later, while in college at Wayne State, I lived on the Boulevard near 16th, just down the road from Hitsville, USA.

    Moved away in the early 70's to make my mark on radio, tv and film in SF, CA.  San Francisco marked me more than I marked it, however.. heh.  Many moves since then.  Midwest, east coast, back to midwest. Now in Missouri, but always a Detroit boy at heart.  Still have family and lots of friends there and visit often.

    Soc et tuum Tigers!

    Are you from/in the city?
