Ann Delisi's Essential Music

comment

WDET-FM (101.9); wdetfm.org

She's the franchise player around whom WDET began a few years ago to rebuild its tattered rep as a music station — complementing weekday news and talk with music-heavy wekeends. Last year, her on-air colleague Jon Moshier with his Modern Music bumped her out of her two-year run as winner here. This year she's back. A longtime radio and TV personality whose first prominence was on WDET in the 1980s, Delisi knows that the name of the game today is multimedia; a mere presence behind the microphone and a stack of shellac no longer cuts it. So the shows are laden with themes (birthday artist tributes, record and event anniversaries), special guests and audience involvement gambits that span the show, Facebook and Essential Listening Parties hosted by Delisi and fellow host Rob Reinhardt. She airs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
