GRSS Premiers Oct. 10th on LCC Radio & LCC-TV
It was 2005 when WLNZ began its popular Grand River Radio music series showcasing talented musicians from the Great Lakes region. The concept began as a monthly concert held at unique venues around Lansing. Then LCC Radio reinvented the concept in 2008 as a weekly acoustic show and live broadcast. Starting October 10, 5 p.m., we continue the celebration of Great Lakes music with a revamped concept, the Grand River Studio Sessions, a LCC Radio and LCC-TV simulcast experience. We'll be kicking off the premier episode with Joe Hertler. The goal: create an atmosphere that gives our listeners/viewers the feel of what it would be like to have an artist recording a demo right in their living room. Stories, interviews, and performance are all a part of the Grand River Studio Sessions.
