Eighteen years ago this morning brought the sad news of the death of beloved Detroit radio personality J.P. McCarthy. McCarthy ruled the morning radio airwaves at WJR for 30 years. Current State contributor Russ White worked with McCarthy for the last five years of J.P.'s life and has this remembrance of the great voice of the Great Lakes.
