Thank you all for the love and support shown to Michigan Magazine TV and the museum. It is this same love we extend to you in each and everyone of our programs since our beginnings back in 1989.

May God bless you and your family this Christmas season and may the peace of our Lord and act of "giving" be at the forefront of this celebration.

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manager.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace good will toward men."

There is still hope in this world and an undying spirit of faith that surpasses all human knowledge.

We wish for you , your family and friends, this gift of faith coupled with grace that , I firmly believe, can comfort souls and move mountains.

Watch out for Megan Rae

Megan Rae belts out a single from her debut album exclusively... on Twitpic
I rolled out of bed at 4:30 am this morning with a catchy little tune running over and over in my head. I song I heard yesterday in the studio of R&R Productions just out of Grand Rapids. The song was being sung by a fresh new Michigan talent named Megan Rae.

She is only 14 years old but has the talent and potential of a seasoned professional...what a delight! Watch for the upcoming segment on Michigan Magazine. Yesterdays journey to R&R productions of Wyoming was organized and arranged by our Producer Dan Morgan "this is one story we just got to give to the Michigan People!"...I am soooo glad I agreed.

Robyn Robbins (founding member of THE SILVER BULLET BAND) , R&R owner & producer, is tapping into a fairly large pool of untapped raw Michigan talent. I am sooo pleased we have been given the opportunity to be a part of the equation that will, perhaps, sew the seeds of up and coming stars FROM MICHIGAN.

The Michigan Magazine crew, Producer/Engineer Dan Morgan, Cameraman Keven O'Neil and myself were sooooo warmly greeted and made to feel at home by PR Manager Kathy Miller and Robyn himself...we immediately felt at home...Despite me being obviously overwhelmed and impressed with the scores of Gold and Platinum records that hung on the wall over the Baby Grand Piano!!

Our interview with Robyn will undoubtedly show a humble man who has lived that life of ROCK AND ROLL...traveled the world and come back to Michigan to share his expertise with the next generation of music makers. Great guy and great story coming up on Michigan Magazine.

Michigan Magazine Museum: America On Wheels Travel and Sightseeing Directory

Michigan Magazine Museum: America On Wheels Travel and Sightseeing Directory

Springtime in Michigan!

Love it! Getting a wonderful May rain this morning. The kind of rain that cleans the air and revitalizes the spirit.

I left our bedroom windows open last night to let those warm breezes filled with the wonderful smell fill the room.....Had GREAT dreams and woke up ready! Ready for "what" ? I'm not sure....but I'm sure I'm gunna be prepared! :-)

It's been 4 hours since I got up and moved into my home studio and the rain is still coming down. "Things" are going to be green!

What a wonderful week it was last week at Michigan Magazine. Met some wonderful Michiganders on the hiways and biways. Love those chance encounters in department stores with viewers and friends. I kinda hate getting caught in the cosmetic section buying for my wife...."hey Barry I didn't know you wore make up"......hmmm not a bad Idea I say.

I'd like to thank Rick Kalosis of Alger's PSA graphics this week for getting the Michigan Magazine HHR on the road with new lettering to let everyone know that Michigan Magazine is in town....Look for the gold Chevy HHR on the road and honk if you're watching!

Also like to thank our Associate Executive Producer Dan Morgan of Ziggynet for making the arrangments for some exciting segments coming down the line for Michigan Magazine.....Next week we'll be heading for Wyoming....Michigan that is! You all are going to be surprised what we've discovered down there that will make your head whirl!

Well we are also getting mighty excited about the Michigan Magazine opening up in just a few weeks. Carol Fisher (989) 826-3169, our event coordinator, is working up a storm with some mighty excitin events...She tells me she has room for vendor particiapation in our upcoming events...check it out at our Museum events page at our web site

Nelson Yoder our museum curator is on the way to the museum as we speak...preping the museum for visitors! 989.848.2246... Be sure and to the "spiritofmichigan" at YOUTUBE to find a video on the upcoming museum events.

Gotta go everyone...hopefully we'll see ya on the backroads.
