Ever wonder how two regular guys ended up with a popular PBS TV show and books that feature the cool people, places and things that make Michigan a great place to be? If you’d like to find out how it all happened, join us on September 17 at 7 p.m, in the Donald Dodge Auditorium of Port Huron, as the St. Clair County Library System presents Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman, the men of Under the Radar Michigan for an inspirational story of reinvention and discovery.

Tom and Jim will tell you how they do it, why they do it, and share great stories from their travels around Michigan. Be sure to bring your questions, your sense of adventure and your sense of humor, because when Tom and Jim start talking ... it’s a wild and crazy ride. Book Signing immediately to follow. Both the First 50 and Next 50 will be available for purchase.

"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. They pack a ton of positive information and energy into every program. If you haven’t seen Under the Radar Michigan ... look for it on your local PBS station, or go to utrmichigan.com and do a little perusing before the program. You’ll be glad you did.

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, Michigan, Tom 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. After graduation from Oakland University with a degree in journalism, Tom, his wife Cathy and their children have turned Michigan into their vacation playground, exploring its many wonders and attractions. Tom loves people and loves where he lives.

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 (Jim loved radio). Jim’s 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. Jim 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, Michigan and insists that he’s quite normal despite owning three cats.
