The Ann Arbor 'geezers' at Live nightclub face a tsunami of media attention
Nationwide media attention is growing to unusual proportions over a story out of Ann Arbor.
Since then, there have been requests for local interviews from NBC's Access Hollywood, CBS's Drew Barrymore Show, Vanity Fair, WGN in Chicago, by a documentarian who produces pieces for Netflix, and a reporter from our national network at NPR.
72 year-old Randy Tessier is a writing lecturer and a musician who organized the Ann Arbor Happy Hour at Live. He was even flabbergasted learning ABC's Kelly and Ryan did a feature on them.
"Kelly and Ryan? And I'm in the suburban homes where they're eating Wheaties. Unbelievable!"
Since the New York Times article, Tessier says he's even been contacted by U-M's president, Santa Ono.
