Derek Kevra of Fox 2 and musician Max Prokop drop in to promote an ALS fundraiser while ML, Shawn, Marc, Intern Patrick and Kaleena bask in the reflected glow and Joe looks for his umbrella.

STRAIGHT DOPE: Derek joins the show right after getting off the air at Fox 2, only to be greeted by one of the many lame jokes every meteorologist endure. He deftly deflects and shares some of the other jibes he hears all the time.

Before he became a Weather Authority, Derek went to U-M and worked in Oregon and New Orleans. He recounts his career path, in between dispelling Marc’s weather myths.

ML and Derek, who used to work in adjoining offices at Fox 2, will be reunited Friday at the Magic Bag where they will emcee an ALS fundraiser. Here’s how to get tickets.

Max Prokop of Shasta Fox, The King’s English and The Smiths United explains how a bunch of lawyers who play in bands came together to create the ALS fundraiser known as LawLapalooza. Find out more at
