What is the difference between Techno and House? What is some of the history behind these iconic, Detroit made sounds? Who is the first female black DJ to spin this stuff on the radio?
Answers to those questions and more are from Sven Gustafson's guest, Stacey "Hotwaxx" Hale, also known as the Godmother of House Music. She's been spinning in the scene since 1982, and now she's not only playing music, but also giving back through her work at the Detroit Institute of Music Educations and Black Women Rock.
She has a new radio show on Red Bull Radio, and she stopped by for an episode of the Daily Detroit Happy Hour. Gotta say, it was an honor to interview such a local legend.

Today, we step back to Detroit in the 1930s at a bar that was open (well, as an ice cream shop during the prohibition part) to talk to Karen Dybis.
She's an author of a few books, but her latest promises from what we've seen to be a great read. "The Witch of Delray: Rose Veres & Detroit's Infamous 1930s Murder Mystery" is a true crime book that centers on Detroit's Delray neighborhood.
Karen is a former newspaper reporter, and utilized that background as well as her colorful style paint a picture of a city and a boarding house where, as she says, renters walk in and pine boxes come out.
So join Sven Gustafson for a great conversation on the back patio of Nancy Whiskey's.
