Homegrown hitmaker J.T. Harding discusses his career, his two dads and how his path crossed with M.L. during high school while Marc welcomes Shawn back to the studio and Joe produces like a rockstar.

  • THE STRAIGHT DOPE: J.T. Harding was a punk kid, the lead singer and guitar player for Dirty Trixx back in 1984 when ML wrote about him for the Grosse Pointe South High School paper, The Tower. Now he’s written a book about his roundabout road to rock and country music songwriting success.
  • In one of those twists of fate that you just can’t make up, J.T. talks about how he found out his biological father was another J.T. – Jay Thomas, the actor and well-known deejay.
  • Tuna fish, mayo, a yard of bread and a garbage bag. Find out how they kept J.T. alive before he met Uncle Kracker.
  • Meet J.T. next month when he comes to Lake Orion and Detroit to play his hits and sign his books. March 4, 8 p.m. 20 Front Street in Lake Orion & March 5, 8 p.m. Cadieux Cafe in Detroit
