Gary Flinn on Betty Clark

If you were a fan of Betty Clarke, the host of the long-running radio show on WFDF AM 910, check out Gary Flinn's profile of her. It includes some rare audio of her signing off on June 10, 1983 — her final show.

  1. Wow, another memory jogged from the deep abyss of long gone brain cells.

    My mom loved Betty Clark, she was a faithful listener when I was a kid. The great crystal clear AM radio on the kitchen counter would spew forth great recipes and home remedies. I think she still uses some of the recipes.

    There was a gal on TV channel 6 out of Lansing, Martha Dixon. Between the two Betty and Martha they had an answer to everything.

    Martha Stewart wasn't even close to being in the picture at that time. Can you imagine a cooking and home remedy show on the radio...oh yeah that's when we still had imaginations.

    One last thing how about Bill Lamb's factory whistle show??


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
