#OTGYpsi: 'Plugin' Showcase Helps Local Musicians Get Their Dream Shot

Jul 24, 2019

Breaking into the music scene is not an easy task.  One would need talent, access to recording equipment, and personal/professional connections.  So, Eastern Michigan University doctoral candidate Rod Wallace developed the "Plugin" program, which is a series of events where aspiring musicians can show off their talents in a professional and competitive environment.  Wallace, along with Grove Studios founder and Plugin co-sponsor Rick Coughlin, talk about this project with WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg in this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
