Last week we announced that the first site to be featured as part of the Detroit Mobile Audio Tour will be Eastern Market.  This week we’re pleased to announced that our second site will be Michigan Central Station.

Just like last Monday, on September 3rd, we’re collaborating with WDET 101.9 FM’s Question of the Day to kick off a week of you telling us what we need to know about this location, in order to inform our mobile audio tour.  This week we’re asking you:

“What experiences have you had with Michigan Central Station?”  

What memories do you have of when it was still operational or, maybe, since it closed? Do you know anything about it that you think we should know?

Only responses left on Monday, September 3rd have a chance of being heard on WDET but really we want to hear from you up until Sunday, September 8, 2012. Your responses will help us make sure we’re getting the whole story on Michigan Central Station as we put together the audio script for our tour. Here are a few different ways you can share with us, the experiences you’ve had with Michigan Central Station:

Leave us a voicemail

Call (951) 262-3438 to leave us a voicemail.  It’s just a weird area code because we got the number on the internet.  There is no fee for you to call and it should just take you a second to leave your message.

Record your message using the SoundCloud website

If you don’t have one already, take a quick second to set up a free SoundCloud account, then come back to here and click on this link.  Make sure you have the most recent Flash and that you enable your computer’s microphone when prompted.  Press the ‘Record’ button and respond to one or more of our prompts.  If you don’t like your recording, you’ll have a chance to redo it as many times as you need.  Once satisfied, upload your response on the following page: http://soundcloud.com/groups/tell-us-about-michigan-central-station/dropbox

Record your message using the SoundCloud App

Sometimes its easier to record using the SoundCloud App on a smartphone than it is to record on a computer.  If you haven’t already, you must first download the SoundCloud App onto your phone.  It’s free and worth it.  Then open up the App and click on the orange “REC” circle on the bottom menu bar.  Then hit the orange “REC” button that pops up in the middle of your screen to start recording.  To stop recording, press it again.  If you don’t like what you’ve recorded, press “Reset” and try it again.  Once satisfied, press “Save.”

Now you might actually want to login to SoundCloud on a computer.  Then come back to this page and click on this link.  Once there, click on the blue link underneath the “Choose File” button that says, “Select an Already Uploaded File.”  A list of files you’ve already uploaded to SoundCloud will pop up.  Find the one you just recorded on your App.

Should be self explanatory.

NOTE:  Responses left on Monday, September 3rd only may be broadcast on 101.9 FM WDET. Responses left on any other date may still be broadcasted, podcasted, used in an installation, or highlighted on this blog.  By participating, you’re saying that you’re okay with that.
