Under the Radar hosts coming to library

ESCANABA — Under the Radar – Michigan: An Evening with Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman will be held Wednesday, July 31, at 6:30 p.m. at the Escanaba Public Library. PBS TV program hosts Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman will tell how they do it, why they do it, and share great stories from their travels around Michigan.

“Under the Radar Michigan” is an Emmy Award-winning PBS television program that features the cool people, places and things that make Michigan a great place to be. It’s fun … fast-paced … where Tom and Jim talk to real Michigan people and tell real Michigan success stories..

Tom Daldin is an Emmy award-winning producer, actor, and writer, who has created programs that have aired across Michigan and around the U.S. on PBS. He has also won a number of “best actor” awards in both commercial television and industrial films. Growing up in Birmingham, Mich., he has always been a fan of travel. At the age of 12, he joined the World Adventure Series Club at the Detroit Institute of Arts where his mother would drop him off to watch travel log films.

Jim Edelman’s path to television producer took him from Radio Talk Show Producer to radio promotion director to radio sales manager to national radio sales. His attention to detail, idea generation and the sales chops to keep the show funding flowing, help complete the circle of skills for Under the Radar Michigan. UTR fulfills a lifelong mission to combine the best of his sales skills with the creative guy that’s always been lurking in the shadows. His love of storytelling and searching for off-beat, little known stories really makes his day. He attended many colleges but learned more working for the Detroit Pistons, as a ski instructor, cycle racing producer, tomato picker, and bakers assistant. He lives in Salem, Mich., and insists that he’s quite normal despite owning three cats.

This program is free and open to the public. No registration is required. For more information, call the Escanaba Public Library at 906-789-7323, visit the library’s web site at http://www.escanabalibrary.org. The Escanaba Public Library is located at 400 Ludington St. in downtown Escanaba.
