The Craig Fahle Show

Special Edition: WDET's Remembering 9/11

Today's show features guest host Rob St. Mary in a special edition of the Craig Fahle Show as we look back at the events of 9/11, ten years later.

We hear from a range of people who were impacted by the events, as they happened, and over the years. We’ll introduce you to people who were in New York City, Detroit and, even, the South Pole, at the time. But the one thing they all have in common is a connection to our community.

Many of the voices you will hear came to us through the Public Insight Network. Share your knowledge, memories and idea with us by signing up as a source. Learn more at
