The Skinny On Labor Day Festivals & Fanless Lions Games, Plus A Remembrance Of Honest John Thompson
Play • 20 min

Welcome to Friday, comrades. On today’s show, we air an overdue remembrance and tribute to John Thompson, a quintessential Detroiter and giant of a human being who was the original owner of legendary watering hole Honest?John’s. (Close observers will note that Thompson passed away last months and we are late to the game. That’s true. This segment got lost in the shuffle, and we’re a small and often overburdened team. But we still felt strongly that we needed to eulogize him.)
