Mornings in Michigan

This ​story is part of Mornings In Michigan, our new series about morning rituals from across our state.

For a lot of folks, Saturday is this week’s second major holiday. That’s when the University of Michigan and Ohio State University will meet for their 114th football game. Kickoff is at noon in Ann Arbor.

What do your mornings sound like? Which sounds shape the start your day?

Our new series, Mornings In Michigan features the sounds of morning rituals from people and places across our state.

To open our series, we visited a beloved Michigan institution. Greenfield Village at the Henry Ford is made up of 83 historic buildings brought to the museum in Dearborn and restored to reflect 300 years of American history.

Every Michigander's morning is unique. A cherry farmer might be shaking trees at 6 a.m. Bus drivers and teachers are busy making sure students are in their seats on time. Some of us might just be sleeping in.

For Doug Tribou, mornings mean waking up at 3:20 a.m. to host Morning Edition on Michigan Radio.

Morning Edition is launching a new series, Mornings in Michigan, and we want to hear from you! What do your mornings look and sound like?
