This week on Street Beat, host Jim Johnson from 104.3 WOMC honors our military heroes of the past.

First, Johnson introduces a special package on the World War II Willow Run bomber plant and the efforts to save this part of Michigan’s history.  The package features WWJ Newsradio 950’s Tom Jordan and was shot by Emmy-award winning photo-journalist Paul Pytlowany.
