ME & MICHIGAN PUBLIC RADIO!

Sunday, May 29, 2011

I am thrilled to announce that I've been asked to be a regular contributor to Michigan Radio, the nation's 8th-largest public radio station. I will be contributing essays from my latest memoir, It's All Relative, which coincide with our holidays, in addition to special segments such as MPR's "Life Before Technology" summer series (my essay, entitled "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto," will kick off the series; air date TBD).

My first essay for Michigan Radio -- excerpted from It's All Relative -- aired Memorial Day weekend, and was a powerful and heart-tugging remembrance of Memorial Days past and present. I truly hope you enjoy, and share, this story, and all of my holiday pieces, and that -- if they call to you -- you share them with your own, local NPR stations, too. The reaction to my Memorial Day essay has, to date, been humbling and overwhelming.

Here is the link to the story on MPR:

To say I am thrilled to be part of Michigan Radio -- and a small part of NPR -- on a regular basis would be the equivalent of saying, "I kinda like lip shimmer." These pieces not only showcase my combo of humor and poignancy but also my work on a larger basis. (And I always like to think I have a great reading voice, like Morgan Freeman ... but I think that's my med's talkin').

An author is constantly asked to build his or her "platform," meaning getting exposure for your work, yourself, your brand. That's where a writer often finds himself at a disadvantage to celebrities or politicians who write (Tori Spelling, Chelsea, Sarah Palin), because we don't have the exposure they do, and, as a result, our sales lag behind them, though we are often expected to achieve similar levels.

This is a huge step in that direction, and I give huge thanks to Jenn White (host of MPR's "All Things Considered") and Zoe Clark (a producer and host at MPR), for giving me the chance.

My essays will be appearing on www.michigan.radio.org in the coming months. For those in the Mitten, you can listen to 91.7 FM in Detroit/Ann Arbor, 91.1 FM in Flint, and 104.1 FM in West Michigan. Everyone can listen online at michiganradio.org ... and, again, you can share my essays with your local NPR stations and tell them you want Wade. (And, really, who doesn't?)

Happy Memorial Day!

Possibly my TWO favorite forms of entertainment, FINALLY rolled into one-Wade Rouse's stories and Public Radio! It's at least as genius as the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. I will look forward to hearing from you regularly!
