“Somebody Loan Me a Dime”
Story Behind the Name
Chicago Bluesman Fenton Robinson wrote the song and Boz Scaggs made it soulful…but it’s clearly about DIME we started to make more musical references in the show naming department….oh, and the man’s name is FENTON. Coincidence? I think not.
Hey there UTR urban explorers … It’s time for another one of our patented Motown episodes … and we’re gonna show you more great reasons why Detroit City is the place to be. First we’ll give you a dime for every talented young musician in the city. Then we’ll show you a rose that will feed your mind, body and soul. And if that’s not enough … we’ll chase a 300 year old red dwarf out of the city and even combine two great sports for one crazy good time. If all this sound to cool to be true … it’s not, because we’re talking about Detroit right here on Under the Radar Michigan.
Ya know, the new Detroit is a place you just have to see to believe … and I believe that once you see it … you’ll see that seeing is believing … cause believe me … what you’ll see … is unbelievable. What’d I just say?
Well, if you made any sense of that at all, you’re smart enough to know that Detroit’s comeback isn’t coming back … it’s here right now. And it’s exploding with great flavors … fun things to do … and plenty of positive people to help you get the most out of your experience. There’s also tons of new inspiration, education and innovation happening right now. So activate your sense of adventure … cause we’re back for more of the Motor City.
