M.L. Elrick ( Twitter @elrick/ Facebook ML ELRICK/ Instagram ml_elrick), Shawn Windsor ( Twitter @ShawnWindsor), Marc Fellhauer ( Twitter @MarcFell) and Matt Jennings ( Twitter @MattRJennings) overcome technical difficulties. Mostly. Joey Zuver is not responsible for anything that went wrong. THE STRAIGHT DOPE: Michigan Journalist of the Year Tresa Baldas joins the boys to discuss her report in the Detroit Free Press about how a gathering at a college bar in East Lansing turned the Grosse Pointes into a COVID-19 hotspot. Zorro. The Lone Ranger. The Gimp from “Pulp Fiction.” What do they have in common? They all wore masks. The boys wonder why so many other people are still hung up about doing their part to keep the virus from spreading. Tresa teases everyone with a sneak peek at her next coronavirus exclusive. The Free Press recently picked some of the greatest finishes of all times — and it turns out ML was at most of them. Shawn and Marc also witnessed some of those moments, with Shawn getting close enough to punch Ron Artest in the pills. To find out whether he landed a blow, you’ll have to listen. THE GREAT DEBATE: Police almost ran over protesters who hopped on a cop car Sunday night. What starts as a debate over who went too far turns into a discussion of whether police should stop providing an escort and just let the marchers take their luck with Detroit traffic. Take a look at the dash cam video here and here. GEEK OF THE WEEK: Everybody likes dead presidents. Well, maybe not EVERYBODY. Find out which former POTUS we name GOW. THIS WEEK IN SOFT HISTORY: Those who forget history — or forget to change the channel — are doomed to hear Matt crack jokes about it. ROOM 7609: A listener recommended Erasure as a great choice for LGBT Pride Month. And, since the show was recorded on June 30, they technically checked into the NuWave suite just before pride month ended. Either way, “Love to Hate You” is such a great tune that it deserves to be played in July, too. SO YOU SAY: We’ve got LOADS of listener feedback. And not all of it is bad! Check it out.
