“Motorcars, Mansions and Melodies” by Susan Berg
Susan Berg (aka Ukulele Sue) is a performing artist who narrates and sings here way through the early automotive history of Detroit. This is the age of auto barons, immigration, Prohibition, flappers, the Depression, the rise of the United Auto Workers, and so much more. In 1925, Detroit had the highest per capita income of any city in the world! (Does that record include the Dodge widows, who sold their company for 146 million dollars that same year?) This is a highly entertaining, carefully researched, and informative program that spotlights the first golden auto age of Detroit from 1914 to the early 1940s. Program length: Flexible 30 – 60 minutes, with possible Q & A.
