Granholm lauds music marathon in Ferndale for U.S. autos

A.J.’s Cafe in Ferndale is looking to break the world record for a
nonstop concert while simultaneously getting support for the ailing
U.S. auto industry. Governor Jennifer Granholm showed up to pledge her
support to owner A.J. O’Neil and the auto industry.

Excerpt:

“A.J.
has really done a public service, bringing attention to this industry
and its importance to all of us,” Granholm said. The cafe’s Assembly
Line Concert has played nonstop since 5 p.m. Friday.

O’Neil aims
to break a Guinness record of 216 hours for a nonstop concert while
getting listeners — in person and online at www.ipromiseAmerica.com —
to sign pledges promising their next car will be one built by the
Detroit’s Three. Guinness World Records publishes an annual list of
record-breaking achievements.
