It All Started in Detroit For Arsenio Hall

View Comments

Here’s something you might not know about Arsenio Hall, if he didn’t move to Detroit after college he might have been stayed in Advertising and we never would have had The Arsenio Hall Show.

Arsenio told Bobby & Stacey from 104.3 WOMC this week that he loves Detroit!

Arsenio said, “There was time in the mid 70’s and I graduated from college, and I didn’t know what to do with myself and I moved to Detroit and lived in Westland, Michigan. I started popping around in clubs ‘cuz my friend had a band and one night i got on stage in Detroit because a Marshall amp when out. And I started messing around! And from that moment on I was never able to go back to advertising or anything my college degree talked about! I left Westland, Michigan – went to Hollywood – and the rest is history! But I actually got on stage in Detroit for the first time.”

Stacey joked, “Kids if you don’t know what to do with yourself after college come to Detroit and you can be like Arsenio!”

Later on in the interview he talks about spending summers here in Detroit. Pretty cool interview, I suggest you take a listen.

Don’t forget to watch The Arsenio Hall Show weeknights at 11 p.m. on CW50!

Also tune into Bobby & Stacey weekdays from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. on 104.3 WOMC.
